MiamiHerald / We’re getting sleepier behind the wheel, according to AAA.
.Drowsy driving causes about times higher than federal estimates, according to a new study by the road-safety organization.
“Drivers who don’t get enough sleep are putting everyone on the road at risk, said David Yang, executive director of the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. “By conducting an in-depth analysis using video of everyday drivers, we can now better assess if a driver was fatigued in the moments leading up to a crash.”
About 1 in 10 crashes are related to driver fatigue, researchers found.
