Drowsy drivers present highway hazards

Kentucky motorists know drunk driving is dangerous, but many may not realize drowsy driving can have just as tragic results. An estimated 5,000 people a year were killed in accidents in 2015 caused by drivers who were so sleepy that they shouldn't have been behind the wheel. Motorists who are sleepy may not be able to react as quickly in potential accident situations as can drivers who are wide awake.

The risks of distracted driving

Kentucky motorists may be interested in a survey from the National Safety Council, which found that 74 percent of 2,400 respondents said they would use Facebook while behind the wheel. A further 37 percent said that would use Twitter while similar percentages said that they would use YouTube or Instagram while on the road.
