Drowsy Driving Among Shift Workers Program (posted 11-00)
- In collaboration with the National Center on Sleep Disorders Research (NCSDR),
NHTSA has developed this program to increase shift workers' awareness of the
dangers of drowsy driving, help them to improve the quality of their sleep
and reduce sleepiness, and - ultimately - reduce the incidence of drowsy driving.
NHTSA & NCSDR Program to Combat Drowsy Driving
- In 1996, NHTSA & NCSDR embarked on a congressionally mandated effort to
develop educational countermeasures to the effects of fatigue, sleep disorders,
and inattention on highway safety. This publication is their report to Congress.
- Drowsy driving and Automobile Crashes
- Drowsy driving is a serious problem that leads to thousands of automobile crashes
each year. This report, sponsored by the National Center on Sleep Disorders
Research (NCSDR) of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute of the National
Institutes of Health, and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
(NHTSA), is designed to provide direction to an NCSDR/NHTSA educational campaign
to combat drowsy driving. The report presents the results of a literature review
and opinions of the Expert Panel on Driver Fatigue and Sleepiness regarding
key issues involved in the problem.
