Drowsy Driving Archives

Can a drowsy driver leave you dazed?

Because you and many other individuals lead hectic lives, you certainly have felt the pull of drowsiness after only catching a few hours of rest the night before. Though this issue may only result in your needing an extra cup of coffee or catching a nap in the middle of the day, it can pose a significant risk to individuals on the roadway if a sleepy person gets behind the wheel. Sleep deprivation can easily reduce a driver's reaction times and his or her ability to effectively operate a vehicle.
