Re: drunks et al
An extremely tired driver can be just as bad as a drunk one. They
produce the same effect. Slow motor skills and the risk of passing out
behind the wheel.
I used to drive back and forth from home to school late at night. Long,
and very boring drive and I would get very tired. So, as a safety
measure, I always keep a box of Vivarin in the car! Sounds stupid, but
if I got real tired, I'd pull off the highway, grab a cup of coffee and
down a Vivarin. I was as good as new in no time.
If your driving and your having to slap yourself to stay awake, pull
over, grab some coffee, or get a motel room. It's just not worth it.
Way too many people (even many who never drink) are killed every year of
fatigue while driving.
