Summary:
Sleep deprived teens today are facing serious and even fatal consequences when combining drowsiness with driving. Each year drowsy driving causes more than 100,000 car crashes and 1,500 deaths. Over 50% of the drivers involved in these crashes are teenagers and young adults in their early twenties. Real life accident victims reiterate chilling stories of the repercussions of drowsy driving. A parent of a teen killed by a drowsy driver describes her successful efforts to pass a law, making it a felony to cause a fatal accident due to lack of sleep. A prominent sleep researcher compares driving while sleepy to driving while intoxicated. Raises viewer awareness of warning signs and risk factors of drowsy driving and gives information to insure alertness and responsible, safe driving.
