The Pledge Against Drowsy Driving is a National Sleep Foundation initiative to raise public awareness about drowsy driving, its effect on drivers and how it can be avoided. With the support of our members, communities and Congress, we can come together in an effort to decrease the instance of drowsy driving and improve the safety of those on the road. Take the Pledge today!

What is Drowsy Driving?
Drowsy driving occurs when the driver of a vehicle experiences impaired abilities to focus and stay alert, due to a lack of sleep or being overly tired while driving.

Drive Alert, Arrive Alive:
Here are a few sleep tips to keep you and your loved ones alert while driving:

› Get a good night’s sleep. 7-9 hours is ideal.
› Plan to drive long trips with a friend or companion.
› Schedule regular stops.
› Avoid alcohol and medications.
› Take a short nap if you feel fatigued (15-20 minutes).
