Drowsy Driving Prevention Week is Nov 3-9, 2014 -- LINKS

Drowsy driving is a silent but deadly problem in our culture, not only for professional drivers (and that would include ferry captains and airline pilots as well as truck drivers and cabbies), but for average people at all times of the day: during the commute to or from work, on the return home from a cross-country trip, following a marathon study session at the library, or even while running errands. The statistics and outcomes are astounding and yet we continue to live our lives as if adequate sleep doesn't matter. It does, especially while you are operating a vehicle. Below you'll find some links which share specific information about what causes drowsy driving, how serious the problem is, and what to do about it.
