It is well known that young drivers get a well deserved “bad rep” when it comes to driving. Just ask any insurance company who they would prefer to insure and we can guarantee that “16 years old” is at the bottom of the list. Well this holiday season Tripple AAA is putting out a study that shows young drivers fall asleep much more often than any other age group. Yikes.
Drowsy driving is often just as dangerous as drunk driving, causing slower reaction times, vision impairment, and poor judgment.
So be careful this holiday seasons. Get plenty of rest and take plenty of rests when traveling long distances!
