Reminder of the week:

November 6-13 is Drowsy Driving Prevention Week

The National Sleep Foundation has launched Drowsy Driving Prevention week as an educational campaign designed to save lives by increasing awareness of the dangers of driving while sleepy. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that drowsy driving causes at least 100,000 police-reported crashes and kills more than 1,550 Americans each year.

WARNING SIGNS OF DROWSINESS & FATIGUE: If you:

  • can’t remember the last few miles driven
  • have wandering or disconnected thoughts
  • experience difficulty focusing or keeping your eyes open
  • have trouble keeping your head up
  • drift from lanes or hit a rumble strip
  • yawn repeatedly
  • tailgate or miss traffic signs
  • find yourself jerking your vehicle back into lane….

Then you may be suffering from drowsiness or fatigue. Continuing to drive in this condition puts you at serious risk of being involved in a fatigue-related crash. You should pull over in a safe place and get some rest before resuming your trip.

Thank You! BE SAFE OUT THERE!
