Fatigue increases accidents

Driving while drowsy is a dangerous combination.

The dangers of drinking and driving are obvious to most people. Many don’t place fatigued driving in the same risky category, however fatigue can seriously impair a driver’s judgment and reaction time.

Studies suggest that drivers who have been without sleep for more than 24 hours are as impaired as drivers who are legally intoxicated.*
