One in 25 People Fall Asleep while Driving, CDC Reports

Driving is one of the leading causes of preventable deaths throughout the world. In a new federal report, researchers surveyed drivers about their behaviors over the past month. The team from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that at least one in 25 American drivers admitted to falling asleep at the wheel.

"About 4 percent, or one in 25 people, reported falling asleep while driving in the month before the survey," said lead author Anne Wheaton, a CDC epidemiologist reported by Medical Xpress.
