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.
