Wake up and win a hamper
Date Added: 03/02/2016
Take part in our fatigued driving competition for a chance to win this refreshing hamper.
The aim of the competition is to raise awareness of tired driving. Everyone knows the dangers of drink driving and speeding but it may be less common to people that 20% of all road accidents are caused by drowsy drivers.
Studies show a lot of people who feel tired behind the wheel will turn on the radio or unwind the window to battle the effects of tiredness but there is no proof that these help to wake you up.
Instead, our road safety team are advising people to take a break every two hours they are on the road and for that break to include a nap and a strong caffeinated drink.
