Driving While Drowsy

Sleep is an essential requirement for a normal functioning body. However, many of us do not get the required amount of sleep on a daily basis. Sleep depravation can become very hazardous when driving. Sleepiness contributes to collisions because it slows reaction time, decreases awareness, and impairs judgment.
Indicators of drowsiness:
  • Your eyes close or go out of focus by themselves
  • You have trouble keeping your head up
  • You are yawning constantly
  • You have wandering, disconnected thoughts
  • You don't remember driving the last few miles
  • You keep drifting off the road

Ways to stay alert behind the wheel:
  • Get a good night's sleep each night (at least 8 hours)
  • Don't count on tricks like turning up the radio or opening the window for fresh air to keep you awake. These will only work temporarily
  • If driving a long distance, drive during the time of the day when you are normally awake
  • If possible, have someone accompany you and talk with that person while driving
