Holding Fatigued Drivers in St. Louis Accountable
Driving is a privilege. Every time you get behind the wheel, you’re taking on a responsibility to yourself and the other people out on the road. That’s why driving impaired is never a good idea. Everyone knows that driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol or driving distracted is never a good idea. However, you may be surprised to learn that driving fatigued can be just as dangerous.
According to a recent study conducted by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, driving while sleep-deprived is the equivalent of driving after consuming 3-4 alcoholic drinks. And with 35% of Americans getting less than the recommended seven hours of sleep every night, the chances of encountering a fatigued driver out on the road are pretty high. Considering those dangers, it’s important to know who you can trust after a serious accident.
