Staying within your respective lane on the street is an extremely important rule of the road. If you feel yourself drifting into other lanes due to fatigue or any other reason, safely pull over and rest before continuing your drive. You can also call a friend or an Uber to pick you up if you feel like it would be unsafe to drive.
