Driving distracted is a menace to the motorists of New Jersey. According to federal data, distractions account for about 10 percent of all fatal car crashes. What's more, these unnecessary diversions come in all shapes and sizes: for example, a hot cup of coffee that gets spilled, a child begging for attention or a call on a cellphone that needs to be answered.

Ridesharing drivers in New Jersey run the risk of becoming sleep-deprived at the wheel. Especially in the early morning and late at night, when sleepiness is at its peak, drivers can put themselves and others in danger. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine published a position statement back in April 2018 that brought attention to this public safety issue.

One important step is to use the seat belt.
