(AURN) -- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that about 4-percent of adults in the United States said they nodded off or fell asleep at least once while driving in the previous month. Warning signs of drowsy driving: feeling very tired, not remembering the last mile or two, or drifting onto rumble strips.
1 in 24 motorists say they recently fell asleep while driving and health officials behind the study think the actual number is higher. The study shows that people don't realize their own level of fatigue when they nod off for a second or two behind the wheel.
