When are drowsy driving accidents most likely?

The content on this site is informational and does not create an attorney-client relationship or offer legal or medical advice. Every situation is different.

Drowsy driving is very dangerous, and this risk factor is particularly concerning for various reasons. For example, some people do not realize that they are too tired to drive safely, while others may push themselves to operate a vehicle even though they are struggling to stay awake due to sleep loss or some other factor. When a driver falls asleep on the road or fails to drive properly because of their fatigue, they may cause a serious crash which claims an innocent life or results in devastating injuries. It is important for drivers to be aware of certain times when drowsy driving wrecks are especially common and watch out for other drivers who may be suffering from fatigue.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration offers insight into drowsy driving accidents and various risk factors associated with this behavior. According to the NHTSA, these collisions are most likely to happen during the late afternoon and from midnight to 6 a.m. Moreover, the NHTSA points out that these collisions frequently take place on rural roads and highways. However, it is imperative to bear in mind that a drowsy driving accident can occur during any time of the day (or night).

Whether a driver is struggling to stay awake in the early morning hours or they are having difficulty driving after an excessively difficult day at work, there are numerous reasons why drowsy driving is so widespread. Sadly, this behavior threatens the lives of others on the road, and our law firm believes that the victims of drowsy driving collisions should have a voice.
