Early Morning Accidents in Salt Lake City
Anytime we get behind the wheel of a car we know that there is a chance we could be involved in a traffic accident and we do our best to minimize those risks. Drivers who are on the road when they are overly tired, however, can not only neglect to be on the lookout for those risks but can easily become one themselves.
Studies have shown that driving while you are tired affects your motor skills and your cognitive abilities in roughly the same way as if you had alcohol in your system. It is important for not only your own safety but the safety of those around you, that you pull off of the road and find a safe place to get some rest if you are feeling overly tired.
