Drowsy driving claims many lives and is a major cause of car accidents in the United States. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, drowsy driving caused 795 deaths in 2017. Many drivers mistakenly believe that they will never fall asleep while driving, even if they are tired. However, sleepiness most commonly causes accidents when drivers are alone in the car or driving on rural roads and single-lane highways. These accidents typically occur during certain times of the day, such as late night hours between 12:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. or late afternoons.
