Drowsy Driving

Texas Department of Public Safety web site has a lot to say about ‘Drowsy Driving:’

Falling asleep at the wheel is known as the “silent killer” because it is under reported as the cause of fatal traffic crashes. There is no accurate test to determine the level of sleepiness like there is to determine intoxication and there is little or no police training in identifying drowsiness crash factors.

In Texas, a reported 256 drivers were involved in fatal wrecks in which fatigue or falling asleep at the wheel was the cause of the crash. Another 4,558 drivers were involved in injury wrecks and a total of 7,711 drivers were involved in property damage wrecks in which they were fatigued or asleep.
