How to Stay Awake on the Road

When you’re driving in Lakewood, CO or anywhere else, you want to make sure you are as alert as possible. It can be difficult if you have been working long hours or have spent too much time on the road already. The good news is that there are tips to help you stay more alert and focused as you continue to drive.

Approximately 100,000 police reported crashes occur in the United States every year because of people driving while drowsy and it has been estimated that around 37 percent of drivers have fallen asleep at one point or another while driving.

The best thing to do is acknowledge that you are too tired to drive before you even get behind the wheel. Ask someone else to drive or call a taxi to take you to where you need to go. It is much better to spend the money on alternative transportation or be late getting home than to get into an accident that is your fault because you fell asleep while driving.

Follow these tips to be more alert:

  • Don’t drive on the road for more than three hours at a time without stopping
  • Drive with a partner or passenger
  • Sing along to music to keep you more awake and focused
