Don't Take a Road Nap

Don’t Be Another Statistic Summer is a busy driving time – more cars are on the road. Car crashes are recognized as one of the leading causes of death in the United States. Estimates from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety say that from 21-30% of crashes resulting in fatalities are due to drivers impaired by drowsiness. That’s likely a higher percentage than commonly assumed. It is a percentage that we can actively do something about. Take care of yourself by getting rest and proper sleep. Avoid driving long distances when not properly rested and prepared. Encourage your family and friends to do the same. Sleeping well saves lives. Stacy Arnett is the sleep adviser of Design Sleep.
