Open Your Eyes To Fatigue
Driver fatigue refers to driving while tired, sleepy or drowsy.
Drivers who are fatigued are likely to have slower reaction times, reduced vigilance and difficulty processing information. In extreme cases fatigue can cause a driver to fall into a ‘micro sleep’ where they lose consciousness for several seconds, or to completely fall asleep at the wheel.
There are several steps you can take to avoid driving while fatigued and identify the warning signs of becoming tired behind the wheel.
