Sleep-deprived driving is driving a motor vehicle while deprived of sleep. Sleep deprived driving is the most common cause for motor vehicle accidents in the United States. Driving without adequate sleep can be as dangerous as driving under the influence of alcohol or intoxicants. When a person is deprived of sleep, the body does not function properly. Driving is compromised by impaired judgment, impaired coordination, difficulty focusing, longer reaction times and the inability to retain information. Harvard Medical School reports that 250,000 drivers fall asleep at the wheel in the United States daily.
