Tips and Tricks for long distance drivers

When driving long distances, especially at night, there is a tendency to fall asleep, especially after a long, tiring day. This, of course, is a dangerous situation, due to the accumulated fatigue. Aside from pulling to the right and resting for a few minutes, what can be done to stay awake and keep driving?

Before embarking on a long journey, it is good to get enough rest and have a snack. Consuming only caffeinated beverages is not necessarily the best way to stay awake while driving. Although you will initially feel more alert, the effects will change over time and your attention may get lost even though you remain awake.
Always keep a bottle of water with you, hydration will help! Avoid consuming juices, they contain too much sugar and all they will do is become sleepy!
Pull to the right and take breaks every few hours, even if you don’t feel sleepy. Careful! Don’t take breaks just to sit down somewhere else. Try walking! If you do not want to do this, you can just open the window in the car, whether it is very hot or cold outside, the fresh air will help improve the feeling of sleep.
Stay focused on the road! In many situations, there is a tendency to be thoughtful and to let your mind focus on other things, not driving.
Listen to more rhythmic music when you feel sleepy. The fast pace will keep you in a more active state.

Prepare your route from the beginning and use an application like Waze, to make your journey easier and to warn you where crowded roads follow.
If you are not alone in the car, you can share your driving responsibilities with someone else. This allows you to sleep for a few hours without wasting time.
In addition to the problem of long-term fatigue, it is good that when you leave you also prepare your car properly. Checking the oil, water and fuel level, making sure all the lights are working, and making sure the tires are at the right pressure, will avoid the most common causes of damage.

Cases of getting sleepy behind the wheel are inevitable after all. But given a few rules, there will be no problem in continuing the road. And of course… it also depends on how much you are used to the long roads.
