4 Tips to Avoid Driver Fatigue
One common threat to almost all drivers is falling asleep behind the wheel and causing a potentially serious wreck. In fact, almost 10,000 car accidents every year are attributed to fatigued drivers, which is no surprise given that 60% of motorists admit to driving while tired. As a driver, it is important to be aware of how you are feeling so you can take action and hopefully prevent an accident.

Taking Action to Prevent Driver Fatigue
If you begin feeling tired or sleepy, you should pull over and stop driving. Fatigued driving can be very dangerous and may put you and other motorists in jeopardy. To reduce your risk of falling asleep while driving, make sure to:
- Avoid depending on caffeine-containing substances like coffee or energy drinks
- If you are taking a long road trip, get plenty of sleep the night before
- Try not to drive between midnight and 5:00 a.m.
- Take regular breaks so that you can walk around and stretch for a bit
Unfortunately, even if you are careful to avoid drowsy driving, other fatigued motorists can still cause you to suffer in an accident.
