Stats: Drowsy Driving/ Fatigue

The National Highway Transport Safety Administration (NHTSA) in the US estimates that 30% to 40% of heavy vehicle accidents are caused by drowsiness;  While accounting for only around 3% of vehicles on the road, heavy vehicles are involved in over 20% of fatal accidents; The fatigue metric pupil change characteristics(drowsy driver detection system MR688 main technology)has been proven to have a 93% correlation with drowsiness.

Driver Fatigue Fact

You're tired and you know it...but you continue to drive.
We've all been there, and by far this is the riskiest behavior because the person to enter into the fatigue status is slow, and progressively debilitating to your ability to make good choices. Deciding when it's time to act in response to diminished levels of alertness from fatigue is a dangerous game all drivers play. The driver sleep alert monitoring system MR688 simply helps you make timely better choices.
Like most laws, "Hours Of Service" (HOS) rules will never protect us, because each individual has their own fatigue threshold - which changes day by day or even on a hour by hour basis. Inasmuch no HOS rule can quantify an unknown, what the driver's current level of alertness really is. In that if you drive for extended periods, no matter how well disciplined or well meaning an individual is, we're all susceptible to periodic bouts of fatigue and sleep deprivation. This is where the MR688 can save lives because it has been programmed to react to research verified physiologically dangerous fatigue levels regardless how long you have been driving.

One in eight drivers 'nod off' at the wheel

The survey of 1,000 drivers also revealed risky behavior among many that can contribute to tiredness, with one in four admitting embarking on a journey when they already felt drowsy.

The vast majority (86%) are also failing to follow best practice advice on dealing with tiredness at the wheel, by stopping somewhere safe for a nap.

More than a quarter (29%) put their own and others' lives on the line by continuing their journey after they notice the first signs of drowsiness.

In addition, one in seven drivers surveyed (13%) reported suffering from a health condition such as sleep apnea that makes them tired during the day. Sleep apnea can cause daytime sleepiness, and in some cases can cause the sufferer to fall asleep without warning.
Julie Townsend, Brake's campaigns director, said: "Driving a vehicle is a huge responsibility that must be taken seriously. That means stopping when we feel drowsy and certainly never starting a tired journey.

"These messages still need to get through to the public, which is why we are calling for renewed efforts from the Government to tackle this issue urgently."
