Don't drive drowsy

Drowsy driving usually results from a lack of sleep, but can also be related to medications, sleep disorders or shift work (overnight or long shifts). In 2014, more than 800 deaths were related to drowsy-driving according to National Traffic Highway Safety Administration.
Warning signs indicating fatigue while driving include yawning frequently, missing exits and hitting rumble strips.

Avoid driving drowsy by:
  • Get 7-8 hours of sleep per night
  • Don’t drink and drive
  • Take public transit
  • Use a ride share service (Uber/Lyft)
