TEMECULA – California State University San Marcos in Temecula will be hosting an interactive "Dreaming and Driving" course designed to alert drivers to the hazards of, and remedies for, drowsy driving on Thursday, May 15 from 1 to 4 p.m.

A sleep deprived person will involuntarily "micro sleep" for an average of five seconds. When traveling 55 miles per hour, a driver can travel more than the length of a football field "asleep" with no control over their actions.

"In some cases, driving sleep deprived may cause greater impairment than legal intoxication," said Mike Schroder, Dean of Extended Learning Advertisement

at CSUSM. "This course is definitely something that everyone who drives a car can utilize, especially those that drive long distances or work long hours."

The Dreaming and Driving course will be taught by Joe Seitz, President of the Learning & Performance Group, LLC. Steiz has more than 30 years of transportation and training experience, analyzing programs and developing and implementing performance improvement initiatives. He is a national speaker on safety, leadership, and transportation issues, and has recently presented this course at the Kentucky Public Transit Association Conference.
