Nap Zapper Anti-Sleep Alarm:
A common complaint about truckers is drowsy driving or fatigued driving.(*) Can a Nap Zapper Anti-Sleep Alarm keep them from falling asleep at the wheel?
This device -- designed to be worn around the ear -- supposedly works on the principle of electronic balance. An internal switch monitors the position of the driver's head based on pre-set specifications. If the driver's head falls beyond the pre-set limit, the device emits an alarm.
According to the description provided by Amazon.com, the device -- which is about the size of an external hearing aid -- does not interfere with normal movements and will stay in place around one ear even if glasses are worn.
The unit uses one 6-volt alkaline battery, which is included.
* As we say on our Sleep Better page,
There are those who persist in saying that the number of truck accidents due to fatigue is higher than it is. The Owner-Operators Independent Drivers Association (OOIDA) put this to rest in October 2010, saying that, "... fatigued driving was coded as a factor in only 1.4 percent of fatal large truck crashes ...."
