5 steps to staying alert while driving
You may think drinking coffee, chewing gum, or rolling down the window will help you stay awake, but they won't.
Here's what will:
- Sleep well before long road trips
- Share driving with other passengers
- Eat light meals or fruit and drink plenty of water. Overeating can make you even more tired.
- Take breaks every two hours or every 160 kms to stretch
- Keep the temperature on the cooler side. A warm vehicle makes it easier to fall asleep
