  • Drowsy Driving As Dangerous As Drunk Driving

    August 9, 2018

    According to Transport Canada, an estimated 60% of drivers across the country have gotten behind the wheel though they felt drowsy. More than 30% of drivers have actually fallen asleep while driving. These startling facts bring into sharp focus the consequences that are sure to follow such hazardous behaviors.

    Drowsy driving is today a nation-wide problem and on par with drunken driving. It happens across all age groups though younger people are more prone to take such risks. It has a serious impact on your abilities and poses a huge risk to all those who share the road. Driving while fatigued or sleepy is dangerous because it affects reaction time, impairs judgment and decision-making, affects focusing abilities, depth perception, vision, co-ordination and motor-skills. The warning signs include yawning, heavy eyelids, inability to hold the head up, wandering thoughts, memory problems etc.

    Many people fail to understand the seriousness of driving while fatigued or sleepy. If the vehicle is a large truck, bus or semi with trailer, the results can be disastrous. However, as there is no objective test for drowsy driving, it can be difficult for the driver himself/herself to judge whether they are indeed too sleepy to drive.

    If you or a dear one has been injured in an accident caused by a sleepy driver, contact the best car accident lawyer in Ontario. You may be entitled to compensation for the damage, injuries and losses caused in such accidents. We can help you put together a robust claim and safeguard your rights.
