Drowsy driving causes crashes and these drivers are most at risk

Most workers feel exhausted driving home to Brooklyn after a long night shift. Some of them might experience the warning signs of dangerous drowsiness that could lead to car accidents. Frequent blinking and yawning, lane drifting and blanking out for miles indicate that drivers are at a heightened risk of falling asleep behind the wheel. Shift workers who put in long hours or night hours are among the categories of people most at risk for drowsy driving accidents. Commercial drivers are also vulnerable to getting tired while operating buses, tractor-trailers or tow trucks.

Every year in New York and across the U.S., an average of 328,000 car crashes occur because of drowsy driving. Some 109,000 of the crashes result in injury, and 6,400 end in death. Most people are aware that drowsiness is dangerous in drivers: It slows one's reaction times and reduces one's ability to concentrate. Yet 27% of respondents in AAA's 2018 Traffic Safety Culture Index admitted to driving drowsy at least once in the previous 30 days.
