Have you ever driven a car when you felt tired? Maybe you had a long day running your business or were unable to sleep the night before and you had no time to nap. Scary, isn’t it? When you’re sleepy and try to drive any distance, you put yourself and others in danger. You set yourself up for a terrible, life changing situation. Of course, you probably worry that your over-the-road drivers are driving tired as they move back and forth from Philadelphia, PA. Thankfully, you don’t have to just sit back and let it happen. You can give the drivers on your team the tips they need to stay awake, alert, and satisfied. We hope the information below will help. Have questions? Call Bay & Bay Transportation at (888) 801-3026.
Take a Nap Beforehand
Before you head out on the road, if you’re feeling tired or drowsy, it’s very important to attempt to take a nap. It doesn’t have to last for hours – you just need to rest your body, so you’ll be able to handle the road safely and responsibly. Take your nap where you feel comfortable and don’t try to force it. When you try to force sleep, it’s less likely to happen.
Listen to an Audio Book, Podcast, or Album
Sometimes it helps truck driving experts to listen to something while they drive. Maybe they have a favorite podcast or like to listen to audio books. The feeling of having somebody else in the cab and getting mentally engaged in what they’re listening to can help them stay awake.
Roll the Windows Down
The sensation of wind on your face is another way to keep you awake. Many over-the-road drivers also roll their windows down during hot weather.
