You can't fight sleep
What can I do to avoid drowsy driving?
- Plan a break at least every two hours
- Consider swapping drivers
- Pull over for a 15 minute powernap
- Avoid driving at times when you would usually be sleeping
- Aim to get enough quality sleep before driving – regardless of whether the trip is a long or short one. A healthy adult needs on average between 7-9 hours of sleep to function properly
