New York drivers might be interested in data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that showed that in 2013, for every 100 million vehicle miles driven, there were 1.09 deaths related to motor vehicle accidents. In that year alone, there were 32,719 fatalities.
New York drivers may be unaware of National Drowsy Driving Prevention Week. This event aims to inform people about the dangers of driving while fatigued. A recent study by the American Automobile Association found that 43 percent of drivers surveyed said that they had fallen asleep while driving at least once in their lives.
