Thousands of automobile collisions each year result from driver fatigue. It is important not to place yourself in a situation that involves driving when you feel tired and sleepy. If you feel yourself drifting to the other lanes, safely pull over and rest before continuing to drive. If you feel it is unsafe to drive, call a friend or an Uber to pick you up to avoid causing or increasing the risk of accidents.
