Family Cars With Drowsy Alert Technology Page 2

2012 Mercedes-Benz C Class

As the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety’s research shows, traveling at 65 miles per hour means you go 170 feet in three seconds. Closing your eyes for a “micro-sleep” for just that little bit of time can result in you veering into another lane or off the road, perhaps causing a crash.

Maybe if you’re in the market for your next family car, you might consider buying one with optional technology that can help keep you awake. Remember, you can’t know when you’re about to fall asleep and you can’t will yourself not to sleep. Along with getting a good night’s sleep, not driving all night after a full day of working, and a few other tips for preventing drowsy driving, this kind of technology may be worth the money you spend on it.
