Fatigued Driving

Fatigued Driving

Resolution

WHEREAS, Fatigued driving is an impairment; and

WHEREAS, Driver impairment due to fatigue can be as dangerous as driver impairment by drugs and/or alcohol; and

WHEREAS, There is limited statistical data on crashes resulting from fatigued driving; and

WHEREAS, There is limited public awareness on fatigue and sleep deprivation as it relates to driving; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED, That the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP), duly assembled at its 104th Annual Conference in Orlando, Florida, encourages all law enforcement jurisdictions to use every opportunity to raise the awareness level for police officers and the general public on the impact of fatigue as it relates to the driver; and be it

FURTHER RESOLVED, That the IACP encourages law enforcement to identify, through crash data collection and analysis, the percentage of crashes that are caused by fatigued driving. This can be accomplished by continuing research and studying those crashes that have characteristics common to a driver who has fallen asleep and identifying methods of prevention.
