Most drivers are aware of the dangers on the road. A car accident can occur at anytime, but when a driver is impaired in some way, the likelihood of a crash occurring increases greatly. A recent accident on Interstate 70 may just illustrate this point since it was determined that the driver of the car involved was impaired.
Fatigued drivers can be just as dangerous -- and occasionally deadly -- as drunk drivers. Studies show that driver fatigue is a leading cause of car accidents on Denver area roadways. All of us live in a world of 24/7 schedules, and the residents of urban areas such as Denver are no exception. This means that your late night drive home from the office might entail risks that you hadn't counted on. Indeed, you could encounter a driver that has imbibed a little too much; but the driver directly in front of him or her who had only four hours of sleep in the preceding 24-hour period may be just as hazardous to your commute.
