Driving Alone When Sleepy


Do you ever feel sleepy while you are driving? I do, and sometimes I can be very sleepy.

Driving while very sleepy is very dangerous. I have a good friend who fell asleep while he was driving on a quiet straight road. His vehicle went into the ditch alongside the road. Good thing he and his family were not seriously injured.

It is wise if you have someone who can help in keeping you awake while you are driving. You need someone who can talk and joke, but not distract your attention to drive. You need someone who can pass you a drink, some sweets, or food to make you refreshed and energized. You need someone who can massage your neck and shoulder to keep you relaxed and stay focused. You need someone who can help you to read the road environments and give you better judgments, etc.

It will be better if you have someones who can drive with you; it will be nice if your spouse and children can drive. At least, you can take turn to drive carefully and safely.

Driving alone while very sleepy is definitely not recommended. So is driving without a second driver. Doing so will only put your life and other people's lives in danger. And it is very irresponsible of you to do so.

It will be good if you can find some place to take a nap or rest. It will be better if you can wash your face and head. It will be best if you can have some hot food and drink, and have some fun and relaxed. You need to do something different and you can feel all the difference.

There are many cases of bus accidents involving sleepy drivers. The news is all over the newspapers. We have read of them and we have seen many scary accidents photos. But surprisingly not many seem to care, and we are seeing more and more of this sort of accidents throughout the world.

Many road accidents involve sleepy drivers. It may or may not be happening to you. But it is better safe than sorry. You never know what will happen to you on the road; I would advise you to drive carefully.

So the next time when you are thinking of driving while you are very sleepy, it is wise to stop and ponder for a while. You may really need a nap!
