Fatigued drivers cause untold damage on our nation's roadways every year. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, police attribute fatal crashes to drowsy driving about 2.4 percent of the time, which translates to hundreds of fatalities each year. Nearly 800 people were killed in fatigued-driver crashes in 2017 -- and that may be a low estimate.
Some activities inherently come with a certain amount of danger. But the adrenaline rush of rushing down a snow-covered mountain on skis or playing football goes way beyond watching it all on TV.
