Myths about claiming in Vale of White Horse
There are many myths surrounding what you can do to keep yourself awake when you are on the road, as well as myths about claiming in Vale of White Horse. The best thing you can do to avoid a car accident is to be awake and alert whenever you are driving, by ensuring that you get plenty of sleep the night before, and take lots of breaks on longer journeys.
For the longest road trips, it is best to get another driver travelling with you, and take turns in driving so that each driver has plenty of rest breaks. However, if you do have to take a longer journey on your own, it may be helpful to know what won’t work to keep you awake, so that you can avoid getting too tired and thus causing a Vale of White Horse car accident.
- Coffee and energy drinks. Many people will stock up on coffee and energy drinks when planning a long journey, knowing that the excess of caffeine keeps them awake throughout the day. However. caffeine is a very short term solution to tiredness, and can make you twitchy. This does not lend itself to good driving.
- Opening a window. Although this will give you a refreshing burst in the short term, simply opening a window will not keep you energised enough for more than another 15 minutes of driving.
- Playing loud music. This may work when you are at home, but to be fair probably doesn’t work for long. Loud music will only serve to distract you from the road and may even help you to drift off by stopping you from concentrating on what you are physically doing.
- Talking to passengers or on the phone. Again, this means distracting yourself and will not only distract you from your tiredness, but also the road ahead of you.
