Driver Fatigue

Drowsy driving is a dangerous activity.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, about 100,000 police-reported crashes each year involve drowsy drivers. These drowsy driving safety tips can help keep you and other travelers safe while on the road.

  • Get a full night’s sleep before traveling.
  • If possible, do not travel alone.
  • Take frequent breaks by stopping at a rest area, gas station, or restaurant.
  • Caffeine and energy drinks provide a quick, but short-lived improvement.
  • If you are taking any medication, check whether it causes drowsiness.
  • Don’t drink and drive.
  • Call your friends and family during your stops to let them know you stopped to rest.

How to tell if you’re too tired to drive:

  • Frequent yawning
  • Having trouble keeping your head up
  • Inability to remember the last few miles
  • Missing turns or road signs
  • Difficulty maintaining speed
  • Drifting out of your lane

Staying off the roads while tired can potentially save a life. Following these drowsy driving safety tips is crucial to maintaining everyone’s wellbeing while on the road. For more information about how to protect yourself while on the road, ask a local Rockingham Insurance agent about our auto policy.
