Health Tip: Fighting Driver Fatigue

How to stay awake on the road

(HealthDayNews) -- If you're planning a long road trip, Salem Hospital in Oregon offers these tips to help combat driver fatigue:

  • Get plenty of sleep the night before.
  • Drive only during the hours you are normally awake.
  • Take a mid-afternoon break.
  • Talk to your passenger, and if feasible, share the driving.
  • Take a break every couple of hours or every 100 miles. Stop sooner if you're getting sleepy, then take a 20-minute nap.
