Tiredness and drowsiness when driving often leads to road accidents and serious consequences; staying even a second with your eyes closed at a speed of 100 km/h means traveling almost 28 meters without seeing. You should do your best to avoid falling asleep when driving. Here are a few tips that can help you.
Get Enough Sleep
Before embarking on a car or motorcycle trip, it is important to be well-rested and get enough sleep. Better to postpone departure after an insufficient night’s sleep. In addition, it would be advisable to take a nap every four hours, no longer than 20 or 30 minutes.
Avoid Inappropriate Times and Night Driving
Adjust the departure time to your biological rhythm to stay responsive while awake. The most problematic times are usually between 2 and 5 in the morning and between 1 and 5 in the afternoon. Take regular breaks, get out of the car and take some time for a short walk in the fresh air at a rest area.
