Drowsy Driving Awareness

Have you ever driven when you were drowsy? Statistics have shown that
55% of fatigue related crashes involved drivers under 25. One of the
biggest causes of fatigue related crashes is Shift Work Disorder. Shift
Work Disorder is a medical condition that causes a person individual
internal clock to get out of sync with their work schedule. This has
been seen in the teen population with most being 'chronically
sleep-deprived'. A person can get this condition usually when they work
outside the standard framework of a 9 to 5 schedule. People who work
more than 1 job can also get this condition. You should visit the Shift
Work Disorder's website to get more information about driving while
sleep deprived.
