Going over some causes of driver fatigue

Each day, there are far too many tired drivers on the road, and they are putting many lives at risk. Sadly, some people do not realize just how serious it is to drive while fatigued, and this can result in a fatal collision. Driver fatigue has many causes and some of them will be examined in this write-up. If you every feel that you are too tired to drive, it is imperative to stay off the road until you are well-rested. Many people ignore this advice and if you are struck by someone who was too tired to drive, do not hesitate to take a stand for your legal rights.

Many drivers become fatigued because they did not get enough sleep. This can happen because of sleep disorders, a demanding work schedule, travel or for many other reasons. However, drivers can also suffer from fatigue because of an unusually demanding day at work. Furthermore, certain medications, such as those which are supposed to help with cold and flu symptoms, as well as prescriptions, can make drivers drowsy.

Drowsy driving may be especially likely to occur at certain times of the day, including the early hours of the morning, at night and during rush hour. Drivers who are excessively tired may fall asleep while on the road or they may have a hard time concentrating on their driving, which could cause them to cross over into another lane or run through a stop sign. Sadly, many victims have been seriously hurt due to driver fatigue.
