Falling asleep behind the wheel presents as much danger as drunk driving.

Have you ever been in this situation? It's a more common issue than we think, according to a latest report in the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention, one out of 24 drivers fall asleep while driving and that's just in the past month alone.

Also according to the report if driving and your drowsy it's just as dangerous as drunk driving which means impaired decision making and very slow reaction time if needed.

Drowsy driving accidents also are more likely to be fatal all based from reports presented in  ABC News.

Some keys to all this is get plenty of sleep especially if you're going to be doing some long distance driving, prevent from being sleep-deprived, if it's an issue try and narrow down the cause of lack of sleep.
