The Effects of Drowsy Driving
Drowsy driving has been linked to nearly 20 percent of fatal accidents
each year, or approximately 72, 000 crashes, according to the National
Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The high number of accidents
could be traced to factors such as our fast-paced lifestyle and certain
occupations that do not allow employees to get a proper night’s
rest. Over time, the effects of sleep deprivation can drastically interfere
with one’s quality of life and affect one’s ability to stay
alert, retain information, and make judgments in time.
Signs of drowsy driving include the following:
- The feeling of heavy eyelids and blinking frequently
- Trouble with staying alert or keeping up one’s head
- Inability to focus, daydreaming, or wandering thoughts
- Difficulty remembering the areas driven, or missing traffic signs or exits
- Drifting in and out of lanes of the lanes
Drivers should begin noticing these warning signs that they may be too
tired to drive; unfortunately, there are too many that still choose to
take to the road and place others’ lives at risk. Some workers,
such as truck drivers and other commercial drivers, as well as employees
who work the graveyard shift, are much more likely to fall asleep behind
the wheel, just by the very nature of their occupations.
