6 Indicators That You Are Too Tired To Stay Behind the Wheel

Posted on Sep 25 , 2013
The National Highway of Public Safety made a conservative estimation that 100,000 accidents each year are caused by a fatigued driver.  Those who crashed claimed the lives of over 1,500 people and injured 71,000. So when should you realize that you are too tired to be behind the wheel of a car or truck? Here are 6 signs that you should let someone else drive and let someone else take over the wheel.
  • Difficultly focusing on the road, frequent blinking or heavy eyelids
  • Daydreaming or having any wondering thoughts
  • Issues remembering the last exit you passed or missing traffic signs or signals
  • Yawning excessively or rubbing your eyes
  • Trouble keeping your head up
  • Drifting from your lane or hitting the shoulder rumble strip
These are only a few indicators that you might not be capable of driving on the road due to fatigue. Please don’t be another statistic, pull over and allow someone else to drive or call a family member or friend, so that they can pick you up safely. Many people do not realize just how tired they are until they get behind the wheel.  When they do realize it, they think that they can keep themselves awake by turning up the music or turning the AC full blast and the coldest setting to keep them alert. By forcing yourself to stay awake and attempting to stimulate yourself, it’s too late, you could be another statistic.
