Falling asleep at the wheel is behind the raising of some of the car accident claims in Peterhead that Accident Advice Helpline has dealt with over the years. It can cause injuries to drivers, any passengers they may be carrying, and any innocent passers-by who happen to get caught up in the incident.
What to do when you feel drowsy when driving
Most accidents caused by falling asleep while driving happen at night. The golden rule is that if you are feeling tired or drowsy you shouldn’t think about driving in the first place. If it’s something that comes on while you are driving you should either pull over immediately if it is safe and legal to do so, (it’s not permitted to use the hard shoulder on the motorway for example), or make a point of stopping at the next lay-by (on a main road), or at the next motorway services. Either way, you need to make sure that you can park-up so your vehicle is not on the road itself.
