Drowsy Driving Epidemic

Drowsy driving plays a role in nearly eight times as many accidents as federal estimates suggest, according to a recent study. Using in-vehicle camera footage of thousands of drivers who had agreed to participate in the study, the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety concluded that motorists are falling asleep at the wheel at alarming rates. The AAA study examined more than 700 crashes, analyzing three minutes of video of drivers’ faces leading up to the accidents. They used a scientific gauge to determine whether the driver was sleepy. In about 9.5% of crashes, drowsiness was a factor. And it was a key factor in 10.8% of accidents that caused serious property damage.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
