Sunday, November 1st, 2015

Drowsy DrivingNovember 2015 Blog Image Awareness week is November 1-8, 2015, so this is the perfect time to spread the message that inadequate or insufficient sleep can impair drivers as badly as alcohol. You may know the classic signs of feeling sleepy, such as yawning, but did you know that irritability and wandering thoughts can also be red flags?  According to the National Sleep Foundation, the drivers in the highest risk categories are young drivers, night shift workers, people with untreated sleep disorders, business travelers, and commercial drivers. The Foundation also cites $12.5 billion in monetary losses from drowsy driving accidents.

Happily, you can take steps to prevent these sometimes deadly incidents, including checking into one of CLC’s 17,000 hotels nationwide. With the Check-INN card, you don’t even need a reservation—just walk right in and receive up to 40% on workforce travel.
