Driving always requires a person’s utmost attention and alertness. This is why driving late at night or early morning can be dangerous if you are operating on a low amount of sleep. Whenever you begin to feel sleepy while driving on a roadway, please pull over in a safe area in order to take a break, buy coffee, or just walk around. If you ever nod off, even if it’s only for a second, that is a clear sign to immediately stop driving and contact someone to take you where you need to go.
