Do you have a long commute to make before and after work? Are you working a job that requires you to be behind the wheel for long periods of time? Well then you’ll be familiar with the terrifying feeling when you start to feel sleepy and your head begins to nod forward only to be shocked back awake. Driving is dangerous as it is, and becomes far more dangerous when your tired and less alert. The Alertme Lifesaver Alert – Driver Alertness System is a great solution to this problem. A device designed to detect head nodding that will alert you if it senses you falling asleep.

According to the CDC an estimated 1 in 25 adult drivers (aged 18 years or older) report having fallen asleep while driving in the previous 30 days. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that drowsy driving was responsible for 72,000 crashes, 44,000 injuries, and 800 deaths in 2013. These numbers are underestimated and up to 6,000 fatal crashes each year may be caused by drowsy drivers.

Avoid those moments of cold fear when sleep creeps in as you cruise down the highway focused on the lines of the road moving along in the beams of your headlights with this Alertme Lifesaver Alert device.
