Study says sleepy driving the same as drunk driving

A study conducted by French researchers has found a connection between sleepy drivers and an elevated risk for car accidents.

Data was gathered from 700 different drivers who had to stay in a hospital due to a car accident for at least one day. The results indicated that drivers who felt sleepy, and drivers who were intoxicated were twice as likely to cause a car accident than those drivers who felt awake, and were sober.

Police also determined that roughly half of those that were studied were responsible for the car accidents that left them with injuries. The findings from this study are featured in “Archives of Internal Medicine.”

Drunk driving and reckless driving can cause severe injuries, and oftentimes fatalities. If you have been injured in a car accident that was caused by a drunk driver, please contact the drunk driving accident lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C. by calling 877-327-2600 today.
