“Driver behavior contributes to 94 out of every 100 traffic crashes in the U.S. according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Research tells us that an important first step toward changing a risky behavior is to begin to think actively about the need to change the behavior.
That’s what the 2016 Drive Safely Work Week campaign is about: Raising self-awareness and motivating positive change.
This campaign includes self-assessment tools – one to consider overall driving behavior and another to assess the tendency for excessive daytime sleepiness. The materials will emphasize the importance of healthy sleep habits, as research demonstrates a growing risk associated with fatigued and drowsy driving.”
