While there is no currently accepted way to measure whether you are too tired to drive, some groups of people are more at risk for drowsy driving. These groups include:

  • People who are sleep deprived and find themselves falling asleep during the day
  • Shift workers or those traveling on business who have different sleep schedules
  • People who have consumed alcohol or take medications that cause drowsiness

There are also certain sleep disorders that may be undiagnosed, such as Obstructive Sleep Apnea, Narcolepsy, and Insomnia. If you think you may have one of these sleep disorders, click here for more information.
