Drowsy Driving: Don’t Be Asleep at the Wheel

February 8, 2018

AAAWashington, D.C. – The most in-depth drowsy driving research ever conducted in the U.S. using footage of everyday drivers found that the percentage of crashes involving drowsiness is nearly eight times higher than federal estimates indicate, according to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety.

The difficulty in detecting drowsiness following a crash makes drowsy driving one of the most underreported traffic safety issues. The new research provides an unprecedented analysis of in-vehicle dashcam video from more than 700 crashes, confirming that the danger of drowsy driving soars above official estimates.

National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that driver drowsiness was involved in an estimated 1.4% of all police-reported crashes nationwide in years 2011–2015. (AAA)
