Drowsy driving kills 5,000 every year

Road safety campaigns in Michigan and around the country in recent years have generally focused on reducing crashes caused by drunk or intoxicated motorists. However, drowsy driving remains a serious threat to all road users according to a report from the Governors Highway Safety Association. The report, which was published on Aug. 8, reveals that more than 80 million fatigued Americans get behind the wheel each day. Such drivers cause accidents that claim the lives of 5,000 road users every year.

Cellphone use and driving

According to one survey of high school age drivers, 70 percent of them admitted to use phone apps while behind the wheel of their vehicle. Respondents to the survey conducted by Liberty Mutual Insurance and Students Against Destructive Decisions said that sending a text message was among the top dangers on the road, a view that is shared by most Michigan motorists. However, only 6 percent said that that using social media is the most distracting behavior while driving.
