I think at one time, we all may have.
I have years ago, and it's not fun.
Some highways don't have a place to pull over.
It is a concern for many of us, feeling tired can start to come over a person,without much warning.
I say when all cars have the ' eye recognition' like some now do, the roads
will be a much safer place to drive.
The moments your eyes start to close a warning go's off in the car.
No. I have to be very careful about being well enough to drive and for a long time actually stopped driving altogether as I found I would be well enough to drive TO somewhere but then too exhausted to drive BACK again....
Yes I have. I was returning home from work one night and feeling extremely tired. I decided to wind down the windows to feel the blast of the cool night air,I tried singing aloud, doing facial exercises, dancing in my seat. None of these worked. Eventually,I briefly dozed off and woke up just before I was about to hit a guardrail. I was so frightened thereafter that it was impossible to sleep for the rest of the journey.
Yes I have done this a few times. The only reason I keep driving is because I am to get the journey over and done with as quick as possible. Thankfully I have never been so tired that anything bad has happened
I don't drive, but when we used to drive to & from Melbourne, (taking items down there to our daughters) I was always looking at my watch, & i'd ask my husband to turn off, next place he could for a rest. Those tiny places off the highway have interesting little shops, e.g. a cafe, antique shop, or a big pond, where 1 can have a rest//quite nap on a blanket, or a sandwich sitting in a park. 1 time I used the loo next to a bowling green wire fence, & there were 3 tiny frogs around the toilet seat! It must have been during a very dry spell, because I didn't see them again the next couple of times we'd called in there.
I don't recall ever having done this. Fatigue is just as bad as drink driving, and can be deadly for yourself or others. Have a good sleep before you embark on a long journey, or pull over if you need a rest.
