Driving a long ways? Take a break!
Rest stops help you stay alert

May 16, 2007

With the summer travel season upon us, people are getting out and seeing the sights. In Wyoming, there can be a long distance between here and getting there, with many miles of road to travel. Falling asleep while driving can result in a scary short wake-up reminder of the rumble strips as your vehicle drifts to the side of the road, to the more tragic event of a fatality accident.

The Wyoming Highway Patrol sent out this reminder in their latest media release:

“The Wyoming Highway Patrol would like to remind drivers to schedule your trip to allow for frequent breaks. Stopping for food or beverages, taking time to pull over at a rest stop just to stretch your legs, staying overnight at a motel or local bed and breakfast, and sharing the driving are all good strategies for avoiding fatigue and staying alert behind the wheel. Also, make sure everyone in your vehicle is buckled up properly at all times. In fact, buckling up is the single most effective thing you can do to keep yourself and your passengers safe while on the road.”
