The Utah Department of Public Safety said that since 2007, an average of 1,085 crashes and 23 deaths each year result from drowsy driving. That’s why it’s not unusual to see signs posted on long stretches of freeway such as Interstate 80 east of Wendover warning drivers to pull over if they are becoming drowsy.
The highest concentration of accidents related to drowsy driving involve young, male drivers from rural parts of Utah. Statistics show that Millard, Juab and Emery counties had the highest percent of crashes involving drowsy drivers, and July and August had the highest number of crashes involving those struggling to stay awake at the wheel.
