When you drive while tired, you can lose control over your vehicle. To make sure you don't put yourself in dangerous situations, read this post by PlatinumMotorOil.com in Waterford to avoid drowsy driving.

If you've ever been really tired and sleepy (which is a basic human experience, so of course you have), then you know that feeling of not being able to focus, of not being able to keep your eyes open, and of feeling like your whole body is weighing you down. So this should be sufficient to say that you should never drive a vehicle while you're feeling this exhausted, as it impairs your judgement, your senses, your reactions, and your focus. This can result in you crashing your vehicle, injuring (or worse) yourself and others around you. Still, it's likely that at some point, you will start to feel tired when driving. To avoid putting yourself in a risky situation, follow the tips in the post below to avoid drowsy driving at all costs.

Make sure your vehicle is in top shape, too, so you can have safe drives. Call Kevin Eyre from PlatinumMotorOil.com at (410) 259-1845, or visit AMSOIL's online shop to place an order for the best synthetic oil in Waterford for your engine.

How to Avoid Tired Driving

Try to Follow Healthier Habits

What happens when you don't sleep well, when all you eat is junk food, when you drink or smoke too much, and when you generally have bad habits? You feel tired, right? That's why, if you want to avoid drowsy driving (especially if you drive long hours constantly), you need to lead a healthier life. Eat well, rest enough, drink water, and stay active so you can have the energy and brainpower necessary to focus when driving.

Plan Out Your Drives

The better prepared you are for the drive ahead, the better you will be able to endure and resist the exhaustion of the trip. That's why you should plan out your drives effectively, especially if you know you will be driving for a long time. Knowing where you'll go, how you'll get there, how long it will take you, etc. can help you make plans to stop a few times to stretch your legs or avoid driving at night.

Maintain your engine in top shape with AMSOIL's Signature Series 0W-20 Synthetic Motor Oil, the top performing synthetic oil in Waterford.

Keep Yourself Entertained

Boosting your energy will help you feel less tired when you're driving around (it may even help you feel pumped to keep going). One way to achieve that is to use some sort of entertainment. Be it talking to your passengers, listening to the radio, or singing out to some tunes, keeping yourself entertained can be of great assistance. Just be mindful not to be too distracted by other things, as it can also be dangerous.

Don't Rely on Fast Remedies

If you're starting to feel tired behind the wheel, it can be easy to think that a sugary drink, some caffeine, or even over-the-counter pills can help you suppress that exhaustion. Still, while they may provide some temporary relief, you shouldn't rely too much on them. After some time, their effects will dwindle, and you could end up experiencing a crash that could put your safety in peril.

To have safer rides, you need a safer vehicle. Maintain yours with AMSOIL's full range of top quality products. Call Kevin Eyre from PlatinumMotorOil.com at (410) 259-1845, or visit AMSOIL's online shop to place an order today.

Have Someone to Share the Burden

If you're not mentally and physically fit for driving at the moment, your best bet would be to share the driving burden with one of your passengers. Of course, before you do, you should make sure that they're not tired, too, and that they meet the legal requirements to drive (they're of age, haven't been drinking, etc.). If they do, then let them take the wheel.

Make a Stop to Rest

Last but not least, even though this could make your drive to your destination longer, it is far better to find a spot to take a nap and recharge, than it is to put yourself and others at risk of being in a potentially deadly accident. Be it at a rest stop, at a motel, or in another safe location, get some sleep before you keep going.

AMSOIL Synthetic Oil and Lubricant Dealer

My name is Kevin Eyre, Independent AMSOIL Dealer, T-1 Certified since 2015. Graduating from the University of Arizona, in Agricultural Technology Management, with an emphasis in Turfgrass Management, gave me an interest in equipment maintenance and lubrication. The turfgrass industry is one that relies heavily on its machines, and if they are not properly maintained, repairs and downtime can be costly to turf managers. Looking back I was always intrigued with the maintenance and lubrication of all kinds of equipment, pondering over what brands of oil are the best, and with so many to choose from, I would commonly ask myself if there were performance benefits from one brand to the next. Growing up around heavy equipment, my family owning and operating a bus company, working on several golf courses, and owning a small delivery service, I quickly became to realize the importance of using high quality lubricants. Equipment downtime is the last thing you want in the middle of your busy season. Personally putting AMSOIL synthetic lubricants to the test has been very helpful in witnessing the benefits of AMSOIL products, to include cooler operating temperatures, burning less oil, and overall increased protection under extreme working conditions.
