If you fall asleep at the wheel you risk killing yourself, your passengers and other innocent victims.
Plan your journey to include a 15 minute break every two hours
Don’t start a long trip if you are already tired.
Try to avoid long trips between midnight and 6am when you are likely to feel sleepy anyway.
If you start to feel sleepy – find a safe place to stop – not the hardshoulder.
The only real cure for sleepiness is proper sleep.
If you have a medical condition linking in with sleepiness that can affect your driving you must inform the DVLA. You can be fined up to £1,000 if you don’t tell the DVLA. You may also be prosecuted if you are involved in a collision.
