Being an alert driver means taking care of your car's issues before they become dangerous problems - like getting glass repair for that chipped, cracked or dinged windshield.
Now that spring has sprung, road trips are on the horizon for many of us. What better way to spend the weekend than a day trip whether it’s an orgy of shopping at the Gilroy Premium Outlets or even something a bit farther afield. The problem with those road trips is they often come at the end of a long, hard week at work when, by Friday, you’re barely able to keep your eyes open while sitting at your desk muchless behind the wheel.
Geico Insurance points out that drowsy driving causes hundreds of accidents each year and notes that the Centers for Disease Control estimates thousands more go undocumented. Aside from nodding off behind the wheel, additional signs of a drowsy driver include yawning or blinking frequently, trouble remembering the last few miles driven and drifting from lanes.
GEICO and the National Sleep Foundation have several tips to help teen and adult motorists avoid driving drowsy:
- “Get the proper amount of sleep. Adults need about seven to eight hours and teens need nine hours or even more to sustain an upswing in growth.
- “Try to develop a routine that includes a reasonable bed time and stick to it.
- “Allow a little time to relax before bed. Take a break from the smartphone, tablet, TV and iPod to avoid becoming over-stimulated.
- “Eliminate caffeine drinks in the evening
- “Exercise earlier in the day
- “If you take medications, make sure they don't interfere with sleeping.”
