DROWSY OR FATIGUED DRIVING

Drowsy driving or driving while tired leads to thousands of truck, bus and automobile crashes each year. Driver fatigue is believed to contribute to over 30% of crashes on our roadways.

Driving while tired is extremely dangerous and significantly increases the risk of a collision.  Driver drowsiness or fatigue decreases awareness and slows reaction times, thereby impairing the driver’s ability to timely and safely respond to potential hazards on the road.  Fatigued driving also impairs the driver’s judgment.

Drowsy or Tired Driving Similar to Driving While Intoxicated

According to research, not sleeping for more than 18 hours has the same affect on driving ability as a Blood Alcohol Concentration of 0.08, which constitutes being intoxicated in Texas.  Not sleeping for 24 hours has the same effect on driving ability as a Blood Alcohol Concentration of 0.10.

Driving while drowsy or fatigued is dangerous and amounts to negligence.  Nonetheless, truck, bus and automobile drivers continue to drive while they are drowsy or fatigued and to cause collisions on our roads.
