NTSB Announces Drowsy Driving Forum

Panelists in the Oct. 21 event will discuss countermeasures that could reduce the risk of drowsy driving crashes.

The National Transportation Safety Board will host a forum Oct. 21 about the dangers of drowsy driving on the nation's roadways. The event, "Awake, Alert, Alive: Overcoming the Dangers of Drowsy Driving," will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Washington, D.C.

The forum will examine the risk factors for fatigue-related traffic crashes involving non-commercial vehicles. Board members and technical staffers will question panelists on factors such as workplace issues, health issues, and special concerns relating to young drivers. Forum panelists will also discuss countermeasures that could reduce the risk of drowsy driving crashes.

"Many people drive drowsy without realizing how dangerous it can be," said NTSB Acting Chairman Christopher Hart. "If we are going to prevent future fatalities and injuries, we must identify and address the root causes of drowsy driving."

The forum will be held in the NTSB Board Room and Conference Center; it is free and open to the public and will be webcast at www.ntsb.gov.

More information about the forum, including the agenda, can be found at www.ntsb.gov/drowsydriving.
