Tips for staying alert on the motorway


  • Plan your journey to include a stop at least once every two hours.
  • Where possible, share the driving with another driver.
  • Make sure you drink enough fluids.
  • Don’t plan to travel late at night if you can avoid it. The overnight hours are particularly hard if you are tired.
  • Don’t ignore warning signs of fatigue. If you feel drowsy, stop at the next motorway service area, get out of the car and walk around.
  • In extreme cases, have a caffeine drink and sleep for 20 minutes while it takes effect. You can only do this once in a journey; it won’t have the same effect if you do it again.
