Sleep danger for drivers

Two thirds of drivers have confessed to having been so tired behind the wheel that they could easily have fallen asleep.

The survey, by Motorpoint, also found that more than a quarter of those asked said they would not stop for a fatigue break, preferring to drive on and to try to stay awake.

This confirms a survey by Skoda, which found that few business car drivers take the recommended break, with only one in seven drivers following the advice.

Worryingly 17% of company car drivers never take a break from driving due, they say, to time pressures.
