“Drowsiness is red alert!”- Dr. William C. Dement (he even gave me a squirt gun engraved with this public service announcement)
This is the 3rd annual Drowsy Driving Week, advocating to reduce/prevent drowsy driving at all costs. Routine 20 min naps help combat driving sleepiness. If this driving sleepiness is caused from total or partial sleep deprivation (i.e. an all nighter) then find a DD!
Over 1.9 million crashes are reported annually from drivers falling asleep at the wheel. Many have been fatal.
