The Governor’s Highway Safety Association released a new report this month on drowsy driving titled, Wake Up Call! Understanding Drowsy Driving and What States Can Do.
This comprehensive, first-of-its-kind report, made possible through funding from State Farm®, examines the cause and effect of drowsy driving as well as how states and others can best address it.
Wake Up Call! discusses legislative, enforcement, education, and engineering countermeasures being employed as well as in-vehicle technologies that are available today or on the horizon. Also provided are examples of some state best practices to address the issue, including efforts in Iowa, New York, Texas and Utah.
Our Driving Concern, a member of the Texas Impaired Driving Task Force, was featured as a best practice in the report.
