If you were to ask most people in Aurora whether it was acceptable to drive while drunk, the answer would most likely be "no." Nearly everyone recognizes that drunk driving is incredibly dangerous and is just one of many causes of fatal car accidents. If you were to ask those same people whether driving while tired was acceptable, however, there would be far fewer "no's."
One of the members of the National Transportation Safety Board has said that drowsy driving is a widespread issue in Colorado and across the country. What is worse is that it is often not seen as dangerous, or at least not as dangerous as drunk driving. With approximately 4 percent of adults admitting to sleeping behind the wheel at least once in the last month, it is a widespread problem.
