The National Transportation Safety Board reports that U.S. highways on average experience 43,300 fatalities per year. Every day, more than 16,000 crashes occur on U.S. highways, mainly due to driver error, poor judgment, drowsiness, or distraction. The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that in the U.S. alone, approximately 100,000 crashes (about 2% of all) each year are caused primarily by driver drowsiness or fatigue.
