What should I do if I start feeling tired when driving?

The AA say:

  • At the first sign of tiredness, stop and take a break.
  • Stop in a safe place – don’t stop on a motorway hard shoulder.
  • Drink two cups of coffee or an equivalent caffeinated drink.
  • Take a short nap of around 15-20 minutes.
