This week has been declared Drowsy Driving Prevention Week by the National Sleep Foundation. This public awareness campaign seeks to bring attention to the dangers of driving when you are tired.
According to a recent AAA Foundation Traffic Study, drowsy driving is a factor in 1 out of 6 fatal crashes and 1 out of 8 accidents that require hospitalization.
A tired driver has a slower reaction time, a delay in processing information and can have vision impairments – any of which can lead to a serious car crash.
If you have been in a crash with a drowsy driver then you may be entitled to damages. Contact an experienced Pennsylvania car accident lawyer at Ostroff Injury Law for more information.
