One in 24 U.S. adults admits falling asleep while driving, according to a new report from the Centers for Disease Control. Of the 50 states, drowsy driving is highest in Texas, lowest in Oregon.  But Oregon State Police Lt. Gregg Hastings says it’s just as dangerous as driving while intoxicated.  The federal government estimates that up to 33%t of fatal crashes may involve sleepy drivers.  In 2009, drowsy driving cost 730 people their lives on the nation's roads. 17 of those deaths were in Oregon.  Hastings recommends getting a good night's rest to prevent nodding off behind the wheel.  If you do get drowsy, change drivers.  if you're alone, stop for a rest, a walk, or a meal and a cup of coffee.
