Fitness to drive - Tiredness

Driving when you are tired greatly increases your risk of collision. To minimise this risk:

  • Make sure you are fit to drive. Do not begin a journey if you are tired. Get a good night's sleep before embarking on a long journey
  • Avoid undertaking long journeys between midnight and 6 am, when natural alertness is at a minimum
  • Plan your journey to take sufficient breaks. A minimum break of at least 15 minutes after every two hours of driving is recommended
  • If you feel at all sleepy, stop in a safe place. Do not stop on the hard shoulder of a motorway
  • The most effective ways to counter sleepiness are to drink, for example, two cups of caffeinated coffee and to take a short nap (at least 15 minutes)
