Did You Know? Fatigue Video
November 1, 2012
The new “Did You Know? Fatigue” video is now available on the SAFE Driving Campaign Website, as well as the POST Learning Portal. This third in a series video on SAFE driving sends a powerful reminder regarding fatigue and its role in law enforcement involved collisions.
This brief video is a must see for all law enforcement! Did you know that?
- 91% of officers report feeling “routinely” fatigued while on duty
- 39% of officers report having fallen asleep while behind the wheel
- Fatigue is a major contributing factor in officer-involved collisions
The “Did You Know” SAFE Driving video series has been met with acclaim nationwide. They are each under three minutes in length which makes them perfect for roll call training. Reinforce the need for SAFE Driving in your agency. In addition to "Fatigue," view the “Did You Know? 10-97” video on unsafe vehicle speed, and the Emmy-nominated “Did You Know? Choices” video on seatbelt safety. They are also both available for viewing and download at the SAFE Driving Campaign webpage and the POST Learning Portal.
And stay tuned for future “Did You Know?” videos on the topics of courageous conversations, distraction, and night time driving.
Wear your seatbelt, watch your speed, and practice SAFE driving!
