Drowsy Driving Prevention Week

November 5-12 is Drowsy Driving Prevention Week ®. According to the National Sleep Foundation, in the United States alone driving while drowsy results in 6,400 deaths and 50,000 injuries every year. Some important tips to remember to avoid such incidents are:

  • 22 hours of continuous awake time = unfit to drive. Get sufficient sleep to ensure you remain alert before driving. Do not rely on caffeine, fresh air or other temporary stimulants to replace needed rest.

  • Driving drowsy poses the same risks as driving while intoxicated. Before you get behind the wheel, ask yourself, “Am I alert enough to drive?” If the answer is not a solid “yes”, ask a friend for a ride, or take a taxi bus, or rideshare service instead.
  • Driving at a time when you are usually asleep puts you at risk! The average adult’s alertness level dips and rises at different times of the day. On average, people are most sleepy between 2-4 a.m. and 1-3 p.m.
