It can't be denied that to the sleep-deprived, small setbacks can seem extra irritating. And, it's suddenly impossible to resist the salty bag of chips, sugary sodas and chocolate candy bar.

There were 23 fatalities on Harford County highways in 2011, a slight decrease from the previous year, but still too many, according to local police.

Charles Moore, commander of the Maryland State Police Bel Air Barrack, said Monday.
