I agree that everyone should be informed about the dangers of driving while sleep-deprived.
I don’t think this is a particularly good area for EAs to tackle
Would you please explain a bit about your reasoning?
No particularly strong reason. I guess it seems strange that given that it would be low cost for public health systems to issue advice about this, it’s not already happening more. Maybe the fact that no one really opposes it and it might be cheap to improve means that it’s ripe for more attention, but maybe the fact that it hasn’t already been done means EAs who aren’t already working in public health can’t do a lot.
It’s not totally neglected—there are a ton of results for “sleep deprivation epidemic,” the CDC describes sleep deprivation as a serious national problem, and my local schoolyard has a banner telling children to get 9 hours of sleep. But obviously more progress could be made.
