Calendar dotted with dangerous driving days

Georgia drivers may be surprised to learn that roadways are much more dangerous on some days than others. Statistics show that many of the most hazardous driving days surround holidays that encourage drinking, but some days, such as Friday the 13th, appear to be unlucky due to reputation alone.

The effect of sleepiness on driving, prevalence of crashes

It might be a surprise to drivers in Georgia that authorities credit 100,000 crashes every year across the country to sleepiness. Furthermore, approximately 60 percent of adult drivers admit to drowsy driving. A 2005 National Sleep Foundation poll found that about 168 million people drove while they were sleepy in the prior year, and 37 percent of drivers had fallen asleep while driving.
