"Drowsy Driving," or driving while fatigued, is an incredibly dangerous and, unfortunately, incredibly widespread activity. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has estimated that an average of 83,000 accidents involving drowsy driving occurred annually between 2005 and 2009. Despite the dangers it presents, drivers often don't think twice before getting behind the wheel when tired or sleep-deprived.

Below is a link to a recent Harvard University forum on the topic, entitled "Asleep at the Wheel: Drowsy Driving and Public Health." The link includes video and a transcript of the forum.
