Recently, 47 year old truck driver Corey J. Ness fell asleep at the wheel of his 2016 Kenworth on I-80 in Clarion County, Pennsylvania. He crashed into a guide rail on westbound I-80 in Beaver Township. He was driving in the left lane when he fell asleep, exited the roadway and struck the guide rail.
Fortunately, he was wearing his seat belt and was not injured. It could have been worse. If he had been using a Nap Alarm, the accident would probably not have happened.
The Nap Alarm is an anti-drowsiness alarm that can save your life. It is worn over the ear, and, if your head nods forward, a loud alarm sounds to wake you (and alert any passengers!). Though it is especially valuable for drivers, it is also perfect for those who need to be fully alert while on duty, e.g. security guards and machine operators, even students pulling all-nighters.
Do you or anyone you know have a need to remain alert? Please don’t take chances with your safety.
