High-tech solutions to combat growing problem of drowsy driving

Clearly, the consequences of fatigued driving can be deadly. The most recent statistics from Transport Canada’s national collision database indicate that 3.67 per cent – that’s 67 deaths – of the 1,823 fatal collisions in 2012 involved driver fatigue, once factors like alcohol, mobile device usage or speeding were eliminated. The Canadian Council of Motor Transport Administrators (CCMTA) says that as many as 20 per cent of fatal collisions are because of fatigue or drowsiness.
