June is the National Safety Council's Safety Awareness Month and they want to get the word out about drowsy driving.

Researchers claim that 1,400 traffic fatalities each year are due to drivers suffering from Sleep Apnea.

People with Sleep Apnea are twice as likely to be in a car accident and are three to five times more likely to be injured in a car crash.

Experts want people to know that drowsiness is not the only cause.

Preferred Homecare holds free monthly seminars on sleep disorders every third Monday from 5:30 to 6:30.

For more information on the seminars, call 970-257-1565.
