After losing an hour of sleep over the weekend due to Daylight Saving Time, AAA warns of an increase in drowsy drivers.
“PennDOT crash data reports that in 2017, there were more than 2,500 crashes– and 10 fatal crashes– attributed to drowsy driving,” said Kathleen Zinszer, a spokesperson for AAA Mid-Atlantic.
A recently released study found that drowsy driving is a factor in about 10 percent of crashes, Zinszer said.
Also with the sun coming up later—Zinszer says early morning pedestrians should take more precautions so they are more visible to drivers.
“Try to wear bright colors and reflective clothing if you are walking near traffic,” Zinszer said.
