Driving drowsy results in roughly 100,000 crashes per year, also leading to over 1,500 deaths. Americans average at 6.8 hours of sleep a night, which is over an hour less than the recommended amount of sleep nightly (eight hours). Basically, this means that there are entirely too many drowsy drivers on our roads every single day. Drowsiness creeps up on us slowly, like a warm blanket. There are a few signs to recognize when you are too tired to be driving. If you are continuously yawning or blinking, missing your exit, or even drifting from your lane, you are probably too tired to be driving. Try to turn up the radio or slap yourself in the face to keep yourself awake (I’m kidding!!) If you try these things and you’re still too tired, it’s recommended that you pull over and rest. You could save your own life or someone else’s life.
Getting more sleep is the best way to make sure you’re not driving drowsy. Here’s a few key steps to getting a longer, deeper sleep.
