We first brought you news of "sleep-driving" earlier this month with bizarre tales of Ambien-takers getting behind the wheel at all hours, driving and remembering none of it. A defense lawyer at that time blamed it on users of the sleep drug mixing it with alcohol or taking higher than recommended doses.
Maybe the little warning label on the bottle warning people not to drive while impaired isn't big enough, but it appears that the drug Ambien is responsible for a growing number of traffic accidents. Some drivers have even gone so far as to state that they were "sleep-driving," unaware of anything after they took the drug, including their arresting officers.
