Five disturbing facts about drowsy driving

Most people know about the dangers associated with driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. But did you know that operating a motor vehicle while tired or drowsy can be just as deadly? Consider the following four facts:

  1. One out of three Americans is sleep-deprived: In fact, most people fail to get the 7 to 8 hours of sleep per night recommended by health experts.
  2. People who are drowsy are three times more likely to be involved in an auto accident: Lack of sleep reduces awareness, slows reaction time, and inhibits a driver’s ability to think.
  3. Research indicates that more than 20% of fatal car crashes involve drowsy driving: Each year, hundreds of Hampton residents are impacted in one way or another by this issue.
  4. There is no substitute for sleep: Trying to compensate for lack of rest with caffeine or other stimulants is a dead-end solution. In fact, these products may further impair a motorist’s ability to operate a vehicle.

Unfortunately, most of the public is unaware of the dangers associated with drowsy driving accidents. This means that many otherwise excellent attorneys lack the skill set needed to represent individuals who have been injured. For you, it could mean missing out on your opportunity to receive the compensation you deserve.
