    Why is this news? My brother fell asleep behind the wheel with a freind as a passenger and the car rolled 4 times. They were both fine but it sure didn’t make the news. Slow news day I guess.

    Fatigued driving can, at times, be even worse and more debilitating than drunk driving. The problem is there is no test to determine how tired a driver is. If you’re tired, stay home, or crash where you are for at least 2 hours before getting behind the wheel.
