Drowsy Driving Prevention Week Nov 3 – Nov 10

Warning Signs of Drowsiness and Fatigue

If you:

  • 1. Can’t remember the last few miles driven,
  • 2. Have wandering or disconnected thoughts,
  • 3. Experience difficulty focusing or keeping your eyes open,
  • 4. Have trouble keeping your head up,
  • 5. Drift from lanes or hit a rumble strip,
  • 6. Yawn repeatedly,
  • 7. Tailgate or miss traffic signs,
  • 8. Find yourself jerking your vehicle back into lane….

Then you may be suffering from drowsiness or fatigue.

Continuing to drive in this condition puts you at serious risk of being involved in a fatigue-related crash. You should pull over in a safe place and get some rest before resuming your trip.

What You Can Do to Stay Alert While Driving:

  • Sleep / Take Naps:Your best bet is to get enough sleep every day. If you must stay up late, afternoon naps are a great way to get more sleep. If you feel drowsy while driving, a 15-minute nap can be very effective. Make sure to pull over in a safe place.
  • Caffeine:Avoid caffeine during the last half of your workday as it may contribute to sleeping problems. You can gain short-term alertness by drinking coffee or other caffeine sources if driving, but it usually takes 30 minutes to take affect and wears off after a few hours.
  • Regular Stops:You should stop every 200 miles or 4 hours. Switch drivers if you need.
  • AC MAX – Re-circulation:Do not operate the vehicle for extended periods of time with the AC on MAX or Recirculation. Under these conditions the level of C02 in the vehicle is increased contributing to drowsy driving.

Regular Time: Drive during your normal awake hours
