It doesn’t always get as much recognition as drunk driving, but drowsy driving is also worrisome and dangerous behavior. In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that tired drivers cause more than 100,000 crashes a year, leading to 40,000 injuries and 1,550 deaths.
According to a HuffPost/YouGov poll, 45 percent of Americans said that at least once they have felt so tired while driving that they thought they might fall asleep at the wheel.
But what if your car got that feeling before you did — and alerted you before you dozed off or crashed?
