Just how dangerous are drowsy drivers?

While you have likely heard stories about drowsy drivers causing accidents in Ocala, your primary concern on the road likely remains drivers whose impairment can actually be proven, such as those under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Yet have you ever contemplated just how impaired one becomes following several consecutive hours without sleep? Like drunk or drugged drivers, drowsy drivers may see their reaction times hindered dramatically, while the persistent blinking of their eyes and momentary moments of sleep diverts their attention from the road. By way of comparison, the National Sleep Foundation’s website DrowsyDriving.org reports that one who been awake for 18 straight hours can experience the same level of impairment as one whose blood-alcohol content is .08 percent.

Collision of commercial vehicles in Brooksville leaves one dead

Semi-truck accidents in Marion County are in a class all their own thanks to the potential for destruction that they present. Aside from the massive size of these vehicles, motorists are also often forced to contend with the cargo that they are carrying should an accident occur. In what some may classify as a cruel sense of irony, truck drivers themselves are often well-protected by their vehicles. Thus, in many cases, they are much more likely to walk away from accidents unharmed than are those driving the vehicles that they collide with.
