Drowsy Driving Prevention Week® 2022

Campaign Dates Announced


Washington, D.C. (October 10, 2022): Today, the National Sleep Foundation (NSF) announces that Drowsy Driving Prevention Week® 2022 will be November 6-13. This year marks the 15th anniversary of the campaign.

NSF encourages everyone to prioritize sleep and drive when alert and refreshed. NSF’s annual campaign goal is to reduce the number of drivers who choose to drive while sleep deprived. Drowsy driving is responsible for more than 6,400 U.S. deaths annually. Fall asleep crashes are often caused by not getting the sleep you need.

NSF’s drowsy driving prevention resources are available on Drowsy Driving Prevention Week® 2022 sponsors include Schneider National and Waymo. Higi is also helping to promote NSF’s sleep health messages. NSF independently produces Drowsy Driving Prevention Week® and all related official educational content.

Sleep health resources for the public are available at
