Driving on 5 hours of sleep is like Drunk Driving
An article posted by CNN examined a study by AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. After analyzing the data, the researchers found that drivers who had slept for less than four hours had 11½ times the crash risk rate of drivers who had slept seven hours or more; drivers who had four to five hours of sleep had 4.3 times the risk; those who had five to six hours had 1.9 times the risk; and those who had six to seven hours had 1.3 times the risk.
There are an estimated 6,000 deaths each year caused by fatigued driving.
At Moore Law Firm, we have handled many cases involving parties asleep behind the wheel. Unfortunately these cases typically lead to catastrophic injury or death because there are no attempts to slow down or stop the vehicle prior to impact.
DO NOT RISK YOUR LIFE OR OTHERS BY DRIVING WHILE FATIGUED.
