Night Driving After Thanksgiving? Avoid Drowsy Driving!

Night Driving After Thanksgiving? Avoid Drowsy Driving!

This year, millions of people across the United States will travel to and from the homes of friends and family to enjoy the Thanksgiving Break. While the holidays are well spent when they are celebrated amongst close loved-ones, they are only perfect if they are injury-free.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Thanksgiving weekend is the most traveled holiday period of the year. As a result, many car accidents occur due to heavy traffic conditions and the significant amount of hurried, reckless, and negligent drivers on the road. To avoid car accidents, many people choose to travel during the late hours of the night. While this can be beneficial in terms of avoiding heavy traffic, it can be dangerous if you are sleepy or drowsy while behind the wheel.

If you plan to travel at night this Thanksgiving break, consider the following safety tips:

  1. Enjoy a caffeinated beverage, such as coffee or an energy drink, before or during the drive.
  2. Chew on gum.
  3. Take a pre-drive nap before getting on the road.
  4. Make sure you sleep the correct amount of hours the night before.
  5. Play fast-paced music during the drive.
  6. If you feel sleepy, pull off the road, into a safe area, and take a brief nap.
  7. Change drivers every 2 hours.
  8. Do not consume alcohol before your drive.
