I fell asleep while driving last summer, the sun was so hot and had no tinted front windows. Traffic was bad on 49th to Metro, each red traffic light I got at, I fell asleep and woke up right away. Next thing, I fell asleep while driving with the slow traffic. And opened my eyes to coming real close to the rear of the car infront of me. I tried to dodge the car by switching lanes fast but a car was driving fast down the lane and smashed into my passenger side.

DONT SLEEP AND DRIVE! so dangerous, pull over and take a nap!!

If you drive a manual, windows down and practice rev-matching and/or heel-toe occasionally during your drive...that will definitely keep you awake. You could always drop to 2nd/3rd, pull to redline and slow down again.

I went down to the states for black friday last year with a few friends, left on thursday afternoon, and shopped through out the whole night and ended up leaving to come back for vancouver the next afternoon, realized I was too tired and with the whole car load of people already asleep, I decided to pull over and we ended up all passing out for 4 hours outside of a convinence store at some gas station.

dont try pinching or slapping your face... lol doesnt work....

having people to talk to is best, not the ones that always falls asleep while you drive...

having 1 other person who can drive and taking turns driving is the best way for long drives...

AC, open windows and music can help a lot. I used to almost fall asleep sometimes while driving back home from my GF's house because the road was so familiar, it was dark and also because I was driving an auto lol. One time I was driving somewhat half asleep and next thing I know I was in my garage. I wasn't asleep while driving but I was so out of it I couldn't even remember the details of the 20 minute drive back home. After that if I was feeling sleepy I'd just pull over and take a quick 10-15 minute nap before driving, it helps a lot.
After driving a manual for a while, I find that it's a lot easier to stay awake driving manual rather than driving an auto.

Slowly picking away at food helps me a bit. Had a couple McDonalds burgers and some McNuggets, and I had my brother hand me something to eat every 30-40 miles or so. It might be excessive for longer trips, but it's effective if you're going somewhere in Washington or Oregon.

I do day trips to seattle a few times a year, whenever I feel sleepy on the way back, I start singing. Border guard noticed my voice was raspy one time, thought I was sick, and just waved me through without any taxes.

I totaled my car a few years ago falling asleep while on hwy 91. Thank god no one was on the road. Best 2 things I learned afterwards that always works is to pick away at food (chips or drive though combo) or chain smoke. All else fails, take a 30 min power nap before continuing.

... Not sure I want to drive with this many people admitting to sleeping or "losing consciousness"

I chew gum or a pen cap if starting to feel tired.. Techno is always on anyway.

whatever, in the real world no one is going to take a nap in the car especially if the destination is minutes away. so providing safe alternatives was all i was giving.

I go from Oak & Marine in Vancouver to Gilbert & Francis in Richmond on a regular basis during rush hour after work. What is that - a 15 minute drive? Guess what - you might find me taking a nap on one of the side streets in the Marpole area!

good for you? why do i feel like having to defend myself against a SUGGESTION? it was a far better suggestion than driving stick doing heel-toe, up the AC, singing, splash water on face? i would not be in that situation in the first place.

sorry not directed entirely at you gumby
