AAA studies threat of drowsy driving

Drivers in Georgia and elsewhere in the U.S. will want to watch out for drowsiness. A CDC report states that more than a third of American adults get less than seven hours of sleep a day. A 2012 study from the journal JAMA Internal Medicine compared drowsy driving to DUI and stated that skipping a full 20 to 25 hours of sleep leads to behavior similar to that in drivers with a 1.0 BAC.

Drivers can help ward off temptations for distraction

Distracted driving is a major threat to roadway safety for people on the roads in Georgia and across the United States. As smartphones and various forms of text-based communication have become a major part of daily life, the availability of these communication technologies poses a tempting risk of distraction to drivers behind the wheel. There has been in recent years a spike in fatal car accidents, and some safety experts caution that it could be directly linked to the popularity of smartphone technologies.

Drugged driving the subject of NHTSA summit

Drugged driving is becoming more and more of a problem for a variety of reasons. An opioid crisis is sweeping the country, with annual increases in amphetamine, marijuana, and heroin use among workers. Another reason is the legalization of marijuana in many jurisdictions. Georgia motorists will want to know, then, about a summit that will take place on March 15 that will address this issue.
