11 Tips to Prevent a Drowsy Driving Death this Weekend

In 2010, 397 people died in crashes over the Memorial Day weekend.

Memorial Day Weekend is traditionally one of the heaviest travel weekend of the year. If you are one of the millions of Americans traveling this holiday, please follow these tips and save a life.

Please remember that turning on the radio, stretching your neck, putting your face out of the window, slapping your face, chewing a gum, or pushing a sharp pin in your thigh does not work!


1. Get a good night’s sleep every night, certainly prior to the long trip.

2. Avoid driving between mid-night and 7 am as our brain is sleepiest during these hours.

3. Be extra careful driving around mid-afternoon.

4. Share driving responsibility.

5. Take a break every 2 hours.

6. Take a 10-15 minute nap before you become sleepy.

7. Enjoy a strong cup of coffee in anticipation of drowsiness.

8. If you have untreated sleep apnea, shift work sleep disorder, or any other sleep disorder, let someone else drive.

9. Resist distractions. Don’t play with your Smartphone or MP3 player.

10. If your thoughts become dreamy or lose touch with reality, pull over right away, or you shall die.

11. Do not drive drunk. According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 40 percent of the 397 deaths from car accidents nationally were alcohol-related.

Please share freely and save a life.
