An estimated 300 people a year are killed and many more are injured by drivers who have fallen asleep at the wheel. So here are some tips on how not to fall asleep at the wheel.
Try to stop for a break every 2 hours or so, preferably for 15 minutes or more, whilst having the break have a cup of coffee or at least something with caffeine in, but realise it takes around 30 minutes for it to revive you.
Try to get a good nights sleep before setting out on a long journey, and if possible share the driving with someone else.
If you do feel yourself nodding off, then take the next exit of the motorway; find somewhere to park and have a nap, if you can have a cup of coffee as well, once you have napped the coffee should have taken effect.
Try not to make trips between midnight and 6am, when human alertness is low anyway and tiredness can easily set in.
Donít try to will yourself to stay awake, it does not work, this will result in injury or death if you arenít lucky.
