Making roads safer for West Virginia drivers

For most people, driving is the riskiest thing that they will ever do. Although plane crashes may get more attention, the fatality rate is 300 times higher when traveling by car compared to traveling by plane.

Driving while drowsy may cause fatal accidents

West Virginia motorists may not realize how dangerous driving while drowsy can be, but a recent AAA survey found that around 43 percent of drivers admitted they had fallen asleep at the wheel at least once in their lives. A representative from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration spoke at a forum on Nov. 4 in conjunction with National Driving Drowsy Prevention Week and reported that about 5,000 to 7,000 fatalities take place annually due to fatigued drivers.
