Much attention has been given to the dangers of driving while drunk. But, if you're sleep deprived and you get behind the wheel, it can be just as risky. This week on WRVO's health and wellness show "Take Care," hosts Lorraine Rapp and Linda Lowen speak with Jake Nelson, director of traffic safety advocacy and research for AAA, about the dangers of drowsy driving.

More of this interview can be heard on "Take Care," WRVO's health and wellness show Saturday at 6:30 a.m. and Sunday at 6:30 p.m. Support for this story comes from the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York.
