Drowsy driving is one of the many causes of road accidents in the Philippines. While it can be easily averted, it is still hard to identify if one is too tired to drive at the start of the trip. Because this is just as dangerous as drunk driving, we’ve listed down some tips to avoid road accidents caused by sleepiness on the wheel but before that, the National Sleep Foundation provided a list of signs that it’s time to pull over.
Stay alert, follow the speed limit, pay attention to traffic signs, follow the rules, watch out for blind curves, etc. are driving tips that we’ve always been hearing since the invention of the motor vehicle.
These are not tips I should be writing about because we already know these things and since we treat them as merely head knowledge, we tend to take them for granted. Thus, accidents still occur and are growing in numbers year after year. Hurray for more stats.
On the contrary, I know I should write about the safety tips above just to remind you of how important they are but we’re going to do things differently this time.
Accidents spell trouble. The word accident itself means ‘an unfortunate incident that happens unexpectedly and unintentionally.” What this list has now is how to intentionally get yourself into real trouble.
