Keeping teen drivers safe from drowsy driving crashes

If you have read our San Diego personal injury blog for any length of time, you are probably well aware of the high risk of car accident, injury and death faced by teen drivers in California and across the country. In fact, car accidents are the leading cause of death among teenagers, according to federal data. Many traffic safety officials attribute the elevated crash risk to alcohol use or distraction in teen drivers, and those are certainly some of the main causes of accidents involving teens. However, it is important not to overlook the other factors that play into teen crashes.

Drowsy driving significantly increases car accident risk

While most San Diego residents would probably think twice about getting behind the wheel after having a few drinks, few would likely hesitate to drive while sleep-deprived.

So why is drunk driving heavily regulated while drowsy driving seems to not to be warned against at all?

Perhaps it's the tryptophan, maybe it's a boring football game, or maybe it's the leisure of a day off from work, but Thanksgiving is a perfect day for taking a long, restful nap. However, for those of us who travel to and from one or many holiday celebrations, that down-time may not be in the cards. As a result, Thanksgiving is a prime day for auto accidents caused by drowsy driving.
