The Dangers of Driver Fatigue

It’s one of the main causes of thousands of road accidents every year. Being a safe driver means being alert – and if you’re not, you are consequently putting your safety and the safety of others at risk. If you have trouble focusing, have poor judgement and slower reaction time, how do you think you are going to cope behind the wheel of your car on a busy road?

Perhaps you’re not getting enough sleep, on specific medication or choosing to drive at times of day or night when you would normally be sleeping. Whatever the reason, always ensure that you’re firing on all cylinders before deciding to take a drive, whether it’s for work or pleasure. Make sure you get a good night’s sleep, and don’t travel for more than eight to ten hours a day. Take regular breaks when necessary, and by absolutely no means drink any amount of alcohol before driving if you are feeling drowsy.

Safe driving from Britannia!
