California Highway Patrol Campaign: Stay Alert. Stay Alive During National Sleep Awareness Week

March 2-9 is National Sleep Awareness Week and the CHP urges motorists in the mountain communities to be aware of the impact time changes have on drivers.

Steven M. Sweat‘s insight:

According to the latest statistics available (2011), there were 3,700 car accidents related to drowsy driving in California in a 12 month period.  Even a few hours of missed sleep can affect ones ability to operate a motor vehicle effectively.  This is especially true on longer drives.  If you feel yourself getting sleepy ….

  • Pull off the road
  • Consume the caffeine equivalent of 2 cups of coffee
  • Take a 20 minute nap to wait for the caffeine to kick in

Don’t let drowsy driving cause you to wreck your vehicle and injure yourself or someone else!
