Because of the advertising campaigns I have heard about drowsy driving, I am sure it is not limited to teens. However, if you feel that teens are more likely to not recognize the symptoms, you may...

I guess I have to be clearer: age is not a factor in falling asleep at the wheel. This accident was reportedly caused by falling asleep at the wheel. If that is the true cause of the crash, then age...
