Sounds a lot like driving drunk, right?

Drunk, tired, and old seem to be broadly overlapping forms of impairment. But around here kill somebody while drunk and it's a felony, while tired it's a misdemeanor, and while old it's nothing as long as you promise not to drive again.

It's just as dangerous as driving around drunk.

Listen to mets games gives me road rage. Much safer.

When they hire enough guys to do all the work they are having me do, or cut the workload back to something reasonable for a single person to do in a regular workday, instead of me having to stay up late every night trying to catch up to impossible deadlines, then I'll stop driving drowsy in the morning on the way to work. Or if they let me go full telecommute. Either way, I wouldn't if I didn't have to.

If you're battling sleep at the wheel you are about to die.

In my job we frequently have to either drive or fly across the country to remote clinics. When we drive, we are explicitly warned NEVER to drive anywhere when it is dark, under any circumstances. Part of the reason for this is that your natural sleep patterns will make you drowsy and less alert. The other is the multitude of locals and wildlife that just walk over or in the middle of the road at night (people around here have this strange aversion to walking on sidewalks for some reason).

So i wholeheartedly agreed.

Why is the CDC doing studies on things that don't concern disease?
