The Dangers of Driver Fatigue

There are many defensive driving techniques that drivers can use to keep themselves and everyone else on the road safe. Unfortunately, not all drivers practice these methods and wind up putting themselves and other drivers in harm’s way. One unfortunately common dangerous driving practice is driving while fatigued.

An extremely fatigued driver can cause catastrophic accidents through his or her careless and reckless actions. If you or someone you love has been seriously injured in a car accident that was caused by a fatigued driver, contact your Iowa car accident lawyers at LaMarca Law Group, P.C. at (515) 705-0233 today.

Spotting a Fatigued Driver

If a driver starts to feel very sleepy, he or she should pull over to a safe area and get out of the car or take a nap. Sadly, many drivers do not want to do this in order to save time and as a result, but other people in harm’s way. Signs of fatigued drivers include:

  • Slow and sloppy lane changes
  • Swerving
  • Overcompensating

It is important that drivers who decide to act in a selfish and negligent manner are held accountable for their dangerous actions.
