Staying alert behind the wheel is critical to safety. Fatigue leads to low alertness, poor attention, slow reactions and limited visual activity. Collectively, these create potential dangers when a driver fails to recognise hazards until it’s too late to avoid an accident.

Road safety depends on concentration, awareness and planning, so it’s vital that you remain alert at all times. Driving when tired can cost lives.

TOP TIP

Keep your eyes moving and remain attentive. Stop and rest if you feel tired.
