New AAA Report Details Dangers Of Drowsy Driving

Considered to be a form of impaired driving, drowsy driving is a shockingly common yet very dangerous habit. An AAA survey revealed that in the past month, nearly a third of drivers have driven while they were “so tired that they could barely keep their eyes open.”

Prescription sleep aids may be a partial culprit, seeing as one in five Americans have gotten behind the wheel within 7 hours of taking such medications, the survey found.

But in many cases, experts say, drowsy driving is simply “impossible to avoid.”
