The Dangers of Driving Drowsy and How to Avoid it

The Dangers of Driving Drowsy and How to Avoid it- blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

According to the AAA, 41 percent of motorists report “falling asleep or nodding off” while driving at least once in their lifetime, reports CBS News correspondent Jeff Pegues.

Just two hours less sleep than you need in one night is enough to potentially impair your driving the next day, according to the National Transportation Safety Board.

If you feel yourself getting sleepy behind the wheel, follow these simple steps from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration:

  • Stop driving altogether.
  • Consume the caffeine equivalent of two cups of coffee.
  • Take a 20-minute nap, and after the nap, drive to the closest safe resting spot, such as a motel, friend’s house, or go home and sleep.
