We hear all the time about drivers falling asleep at the wheel and veering into a median, another car, or driving off the road. Some of these drivers are fortunate enough to escape injury and avoid harming others. Others lose their lives or collide with other drivers, causing harm that could have been prevented.
In many cases, drivers experience signs of fatigue before they drift off to sleep, but not always. Even when signs of fatigue are present, they can be missed. For these reasons, it is important to take frequent breaks when driving long distances and to pull over if you have even a hint of suspicion that you are starting to feel fatigued while on the road.
