Ford sleep suit simulates fatigued driving

Lack of sleep wreaks havoc on a person's system, causing mood swings, affecting concentration and making skin age faster. It can also make people worse and more dangerous drivers, as fatigue is a major contributor in as many as 20 percent of car accidents. Arizona motorists should be aware of the effects of fatigue on their ability to drive, and they should be wary of fatigued drivers on the road. Ford is making use of a specially-designed sleep suit to help spread the word about this problem.

Avoiding drowsy driving due to daylight saving time

Drowsy driving becomes a problem every year in Arizona after residents "spring forward" for daylight saving time. Losing one hour of sleep may not seem like much, but it can have a large effect. The usual recommendation is that drivers get a minimum of seven hours of sleep each night. According to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, getting one or two fewer hours than that in a 24-hour period can double one's chances of being involved in a car crash.

Safety coalition formed to press Congress for speed limiters

Both the Truck Safety Coalition and Road Safe American have joined forces to reduce trucking accidents in Arizona and across the United States. The safety groups sent a letter to Congress to encourage lawmakers to pass legislation that would require automatic emergency braking systems and speed limiters to be installed and used on all heavy-duty trucks. The groups say that they have been trying for 12 years to get the measures passed.
