Drowsy driving is one of the reasons that plagues truck drivers routinely. Accidentally falling asleep at the wheel can lead to a serious truck accident. Stay focused on the road but keep your eyes moving. Periodically shift your eyes to the side-view mirrors, the rear-view mirror, and ahead of the road. Doing this, you can spot a potentially dangerous situation before it happens.
