    Know the warning signs of tiredness to avoid a car accident

    When you are unable to keep your eyes open, then it is fairly obvious that you are too tired to drive. However, many adults still don’t know the first warning signs of tiredness, and will thus happily get into the car for a long journey thinking that they will be able to last through. The danger with this is that the more tired you get, the more likely it is that you will make a mistake and have a Swale car accident.

    You want to avoid being in any way tired when you first get into your car, and know what the warning signs for tiredness are so that you can pull over before there is a problem. Here are some signs which might suggest that you are too tired to drive safely:

    • Difficulty concentrating. You may find that you cannot remember exactly where you are supposed to be going, or what your next turn is. This is an early sign that you should pull over and rest.
    • Sore eyes. Before your eyes start to get heavy and droop down, they will start to feel sore or itchy. Don’t let it get to the stage where your eyes start to close.
    • Drifting on the road. This will be a later sign and is often caused by a ‘micro sleep’, where you drift off for just a second. If you find yourself drifting across the road with no recollection of why or how, pull over immediately.
    • Yawning. The body doesn’t consciously yawn — it happens because as you are starting to feel really tired, your body breathes much more shallowly. A yawn is used to get a large intake of oxygen into your body, to keep you awake for a little longer.
    • Slower reactions. Hopefully you will notice this before it causes problems, but you can probably see how slower reactions could easily cause an accident, or at the very least make it difficult to avoid one.
