Drowsy driving and falling asleep accidents are common resulting in fatalities and serious injuries.
Drowsy driving has been compared with drunk driving in terms of its impact on performance.
Commercial drivers are a high-risk group for drowsy driving and its consequences. Contributing factors include sleep deprivation, overnight driving, and high rates of associated sleep disorders such as obstructive sleep apnoea. Commercial drivers require a higher standard for assessing medical fitness to drive.
