Recent polls reveal that more than one-third of all people who said they have driven while drowsy, indicated they have fallen asleep at the wheel. One of the leading causes of car accidents is impaired sleep. What’s even more surprising is that who are sleep deprived have similar reaction times as those who are under the influence of alcohol. Lack of sleep affects your mood, emotions, reaction time and attentiveness. Sleep-related accidents in the workplace account for an average of twenty percent of all work related injuries.
Now, when you turn to driving while tired, the consequences are even more dire. So, think twice the next time you are sleepy but decide to go on with your day and get behind the wheel.
