Driver fatigue is another main reason for road accidents. It has been observed that sleep-related incidents are more likely to result in death or serious injury.
When you are planning to drive long distance, always remember that you will land yourself in a state of tiredness and that you will need to take a short break. So plan your route and your stops accordingly.
Avoid driving whenever you are tired. Remember you are putting your life and if there are passengers their life and the lives of those on the road at risk.
Don’t rush or push yourself to reach your destination. It is better to reach late than not reach at all.
As much as possible avoid driving between midnight and early morning hours. That’s the resting time and the time when most accidents occur.
