Sleep loss can affect your driving | Westlake Village | Malibu California

Sleep apnea can be extremely dangerous when it comes to driving. While driving when tired seems like no big deal, you’ll be suprised to find out that studies have concluded that driving while excessively tired is just as dangerous as driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

This is due to the fact that your physical and mental capacities are impaired which lower your reaction time and your ability to process information and make good judgment. This proves to be a danger not just to the sleep apnea sufferer but also to other motorists on the road.

Drowsiness from lack of sleep is the cause of many mishaps on the road. A recent poll found that one-third of respondents had fallen asleep at the wheel while driving. In fact, sleep deprived motorists account for over half of all vehicle accidents.

If you are suffering from sleep apnea, you are at a higher risk of falling asleep on the road due to lack of sleep. Contact Dr. Carson today and ensure your safety and the safety of those around you.
