The latest statistics about drowsy drivers have recently been released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). According to the CDC, 1 in 24 drivers admits to falling asleep while behind the wheel of a motor vehicle. The CDC thinks that the number may be even higher since many people may not notice when they fall asleep for a few seconds behind the wheel.
Are You Safe With About 4% of Drivers Falling Asleep at the Wheel?
Maybe not. A tired driver may be as dangerous as a distracted or drunk driver and may cause you significant harm in a car crash.
