Almost every driver has felt tired behind the wheel, especially when driving long distances. Driver fatigue is a major threat to motorists and can potentially cause a serious accident. By preventing driver fatigue and staying aware of this problem, you may be able to minimize this danger when you hit the road.

There are roughly 10,000 car accidents caused by fatigued driving annually across the United States. You may be eligible for financial compensation if you or someone you know has been injured in a car or truck accident because of a driver who failed to stay alert at the wheel.

Battling Driver Fatigue

Whether you are going on a lengthy road trip across multiple states or just driving home from work, driver fatigue may be a risk. Fortunately, you can be proactive in fighting the possibility of falling asleep at the wheel by:

  • Go to bed early the night before a long trip so you can rest up
  • Travel with someone else so you can share the driving responsibilities
  • Do not drink large amounts of caffeine
  • Avoid heavy meals while on the road
  • Pull over and walk around if you get tired

Despite your own efforts to remain safe, others may still put you and your loved ones in danger.
