Fatigued Driving Accidents: A Preventable Epidemic
According to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration,
drowsy or fatigued driving is suspected in as many as one in six fatal
car accidents, as well in one out of every eight crashes that results
in hospital admissions. Statistics reveal that nodding off while driving-even
just briefly-is a regular occurrence. A CDC report indicates that an average
of 1 and 25 drivers will fall asleep while driving at some point. Some
studies even show that drowsy or sleepy driver can be just as hazardous
as drunk or drugged driving.
These accidents are always preventable. Drowsy motorists have the choice
to pull over and rest rather than face the risk of getting into an accident.
When these drivers choose to drive fatigued, they may not be acting malicious,
but they are acting negligent. That means they may be held liable or responsible
if they cause an accident.
