Drowsy Driving is Preventable
The National Sleep Foundation holds Drowsy Driving Prevention Week (DDPW) each year the week following the end of Daylight Saving Time.
The goal of this annual campaign is to reduce the number of drivers who drive while sleep deprived. Drowsy driving is responsible for more than 6,400 U.S. deaths annually. Fall-asleep crashes are often caused by voluntarily not getting the sleep you need.
NSF encourages everyone to prioritize sleep and drive when alert and refreshed.
The Drowsy Driving Prevention Week (DDPW) logo and related DDPW materials are made available to promote DDPW and healthy sleep/safe driving practices in your community.
When you post about the campaign be sure to use the campaign hashtag #SleepFirst and tag National Sleep Foundation in your posts.
