We are accustomed to hearing how hard the average American works, as well as how many people are sleep deprived on a regular basis. However, a report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) puts into context the dangers of drowsy driving (drivers who fall asleep behind the wheel).
If you were to look into the windows of all of the cars on a busy intersection, chances are you would come across at least a few drivers with ear buds on. Some may be using a bluetooth device. Others may be listening to music on their phones. If you're wondering whether this is legal, or safe, your concern is legitimate. Using ear buds is an easy way to become distracted while driving.
