Here’s something that will wake you up: a lot of people are sleepy while driving. A new study from AAA shows more than a quarter of all motorists reported being so tired in the last month that they had a hard time keeping their eyes open behind the wheel. Tammy Gobert of AAA says young drivers are the most guilty. The oldest drivers, those 75 and above, are the┬áleast likely to drive while drowsy. AAA says 17% of all fatal crashes involve somebody falling asleep at the wheel.
