TYREDD, (Tyler Raising Education for Drowsy Driving) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to raise awareness and provide education for the prevention of drowsy driving and the tragedies that can follow. Founded by Kerrie Warne in memory of her son, Tyler Warne, who was killed in a crash after falling asleep at the wheel.

How Big of a Problem is It?

AAA study in 2016 showed a driver who has slept for less than five hours has a crash risk comparable to someone driving drunk. Drivers missing 2-3 hours of sleep in a 24 hour period more than quadrupled crash risk compared to drivers getting seven hours of sleep. The AAA Foundation report found that in a 24-hour period, crash risk for sleep-deprived drivers increased steadily when compared to drivers who slept the recommended seven hours or more.

  • “Kerrie just spoke at my event for drinking and driving awareness and I absolutely loved her presentation. She changed me life just by her presentation and really opened my eyes to what can happen in four seconds. Thank you so much and I hope you and Matt will come back.”

  • “Powerful, eye opening and enlightening. I have 2 boys and a girl. I cannot image the loss of a child. I never would have had this conversation before tonight. I didn’t know I needed to. I will make changes in our hour TONIGHT! Thank you for sharing your story and the science behind it.”

  • “I loved how you put in perspective that this could actually happen to an everyday teen and how often it happens. You touched me when you were talking about siblings and that he will never see them again. If this ever happened to my only sister I would go insane. I am thankful that there are people like you in the world.”
