While we don’t like to think about it, road accidents claim more than a thousand lives every year. In 2019, as many as 1,738 people were killed on UK roads. And while some accidents are not preventable, the true tragedy is the number of lives lost every year as a result of crashes which could have been avoided.
Tiredness at the wheel, or driving fatigue, is one such example. Most people are fairly confident in their driving abilities. It’s for that reason a lot of us will take to the roads, even when we really aren’t awake enough to properly focus.
This guide produced by Hendy Car and Van Store looks at driving fatigue in detail, highlighting the causes as well as the preventative measures you can take to drastically reduce your chances of having an accident while tired.
