Drowsy driving can be just as dangerous as drunk driving; both diminish a driver’s judgment, reaction time, and awareness. Reflexes are slow when one is sleepy, increasing the odds of a wreck when a driver falls asleep behind the wheel. Too many drivers “tough it out” by believing they can still pay attention to the road while drowsy. But, in truth, no one can know the precise moment they fall asleep. It’s easy for tired drivers to doze off, oblivious to the fact that they (and others) are at risk.
