Daylight Time Switch Can Cause Driving Danger

Sacramento, CA...When Daylight Saving Time begins on March 12, many motorists may find themselves short of sleep and a danger on the roadways. The California Highway Patrol (CHP) wants the public to be aware of the risks associated with drowsy driving.



“When clocks are set forward in the spring, people often lose an hour of sleep,” CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow said. “Drowsy driving can have the same effect on a person as drinking alcohol, with equally deadly consequences. The skills required to be a safe driver are significantly reduced when you have not had enough sleep.”

Preliminary 2016 information shows that 33 people died and more than 3,800 were injured in collisions caused by fatigued or sleepy drivers on California roadways. Data from the CHP’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Reporting System also indicates that sleepy or fatigued drivers were responsible for more than 6,700 collisions.

Sleep-related collisions are most common in young people, who tend to stay up late, sleep too little, and drive at night, according to the National Sleep Foundation (NSF). Nationally, 55 percent of all collisions in which the driver fell asleep involved drivers 25 years of age and younger.

Signs of drowsy driving include trouble focusing, heavy eyelids, an inability to remember the last stretch of road just driven, yawning constantly, head bobbing, and drifting from one’s traffic lane. According to the NSF’s Sleep in America poll, 60 percent of Americans have driven while feeling sleepy and 37 percent admit to actually having fallen asleep at the wheel in the past year.

To prevent drowsy driving, the NSF recommends:
- Get enough sleep before driving. Most adults need seven to nine hours.
- Do not drive if you have been awake for 24 hours or more.
- If you feel sleepy, drink something with caffeine.
- Let a passenger take over the driving.
- If all else fails, find a safe place to take a short nap by exiting the freeway or pulling into a
rest stop, or stay somewhere for the night.

The mission of the CHP is to provide the highest level of Safety, Service, and Security to the people
of California.

      Ya 30 million pounds of pecticides are used every year for the vineyards in California with increasing numbers 3 million pounds of those pecticides were cancer causing and contaiminate the ground water. 500,000 pounds of glyphosate was used which can cause Parkinson's, infertility, cancer also grapes use twice as much pesticides than any other farming industry.

        Wow, I did not know that.
        I drink, I like it, but even I know that marijuana is safer then alcohol, hands down. I just don't like the feeling. I smoke one hit sometimes two, about 4 x's a week right before bedtime to help me sleep and it really works.
        Sorry, but no matter what the ignorant say, weed is not as dangerous as alcohol, the health hazards, the deaths from drinking and caused by those who do drink.
        Have a wonderful evening

    Don't blame the time change for people driving drowsy or recklessly. This type of driving occurs everyday with several foothill idiots behind the wheel including women in the Murphys area that drive BMWS that think they are so important.

Driving old is very dangerous also. After 70, you should have to take a driver's test yearly. Ever followed an angry old fart listening to Rush Limbaugh on their way to the post office? It's some scary sh:+!
