Hot Topic: Falling asleep while driving

Posted: Updated:

A report in the New York Times says some legislators are pushing to prosecute drowsy drivers.

A new CDC report found 1 in 24 U.S. adults say they recently fell asleep while driving. Health officials think that number may be higher because some people don't realize it when they nod off for a second or two behind the wheel.

The results are from a survey of 147,000 adults in 2009 and 2010.
