Cold medicines, warm sleepy days, long journeys, and lack of sleep are among the reasons that drivers may feel sleepy while driving. Tired drivers have accounted for at least 100,000 accidents per year according to the stats of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)

Here are a few tips to try if you find that you are tired while driving

  • if you find yourself falling asleep behind the wheel get a good check up from your doctor to make sure there is nothing serious wrong
  • don't drive if you are tired
  • if driving long distance take a break and pull over for a quick cat nap or a bit of a walk
  • try a bit of caffeine
  • never ignore being tired behind the wheel
