Volkswagen Offers Advice on How to Stay Alert On Long Drives

Whether you are planning a long road trip in your new Volkswagen Golf or you just have a lengthy commute, you are likely to experience fatigue behind the wheel at some point. As the video highlights, pulling over and doing a simple exercise routine only takes a few minutes, and will get your brain active for the road ahead! Below, we have some additional advice on staying safe and alert while driving.

Know the Signs of Driver Drowsiness

You may already know some of the symptoms of tiredness: difficulty focusing, frequent yawning, heavy eyelids and so on. However, some of the signs can be less obvious. If you find yourself feeling restless or irritable or you don’t remember the last few miles you have driven, it’s best to find a safe place to pull over until you are alert and ready to get back on the road.

Get a Good Night’s Sleep Before a Trip

You’ve probably heard this tip before, but it really can’t be emphasized enough. Being well-rested is crucial in making safe, smart decisions behind the wheel. Shoot for those 7-8 hours!

Don’t Rush the Trip

When embarking on a long trip, make sure you take necessary breaks. It’s important to make sure you don’t push yourself or continue driving when exhausted. It’s better to arrive at your destination late than to put yourself or others in danger.
