National Transportation Safety Board will host a 1-day forum, "Awake, Alert, Alive: Overcoming the Dangers of Drowsy Driving," on Oct. 21. Presenters will offer an in-depth look at the risk factors for fatigue-related traffic crashes involving noncommercial vehicles. Other topics will include workplace issues, health issues and special concerns related to young drivers, as well as countermeasures to combat drowsy driving. The forum will end with a Q&A session. It is free and open to the public. No preregistration required. The forum will be held at the NTSB Conference Center in Washington, DC, and will be streamed via live webcast. Learn more on NTSB's drowsy driving web page.
