Most fall-asleep crashes involve drivers aged 25 years and younger, a sobering statistic that prompted the National Sleep Foundation to take action and launch Drowsy Driving Prevention Week, a public awareness and advocacy campaign designed to teach young drivers and everyone on the road about the dangers of drowsy driving and how to prevent a fall-asleep crash.

This year’s Drowsy Driving Prevention Week will take place November 8 – 14. For more information about the National Sleep Foundation’s Drowsy Driving Prevention Week, including tips on how to Drive Alert and Arrive Alive, visit
