Nov 8, 2010: AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety study released: Asleep at the Wheel: The Prevalence and Impact of Drowsy Driving
Although drowsy driving is eclipsed as a highway hazard by speeding, drunken driving and distracted driving, 41 percent of drivers say they have done it, according to the report from the American Automobile Association Foundation for Traffic Safety.
Falling asleep while driving results in 1,550 deaths, 71,000 injuries and more than 100,000 accidents each year, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates.
