Connecticut drivers face many different driving behaviors any time you hit the road. Some are more dangerous than others. Today, we will take a look at drowsy driving. Talk of it is on the rise, and for good reason. Drowsy driving is one of the most dangerous things a driver can do. 

This may be surprising to some. After all, drowsy driving does not get as much attention in the media as driving under the influence. The hot button topic for distracted driving is texting while driving. But while it is wise to scrutinize the use of handheld electronics, we should not overlook other dangers. 

Drowsy driving is similar to driving under the influence or texting and driving. It takes your attention away from the road. If you fall asleep at the wheel, it renders you completely incapable of reacting to your surroundings. You can get into life-threatening situations in the blink of an eye. You risk the lives of other drivers as well. 

Unfortunately, drowsy driving is still considered to be somewhat “socially acceptable.” In the fast-paced society we currently live in, many people resign themselves to driving while exhausted. Usually it is for work-related reasons. Unfortunately, even one drowsy driving attempt can end in disaster.
