With daylight savings time, drivers who leave early for work have to adjust to getting up an hour earlier. You need to make sure you are physically and mentally alert in order to deal with the traffic. Drink a large glass of water to reduce drowsiness caused by dehydration. Eating fruit can maintain a steady blood sugar to keep you alert. By staying alert, you can avoid any accidents caused by drowsiness caused by the time change.
- Whether I like the early mornings or not, we still have to adapt and cope with the traffic.
- Driving while not fully awake can result in a traffic violation, a collision or just a rough start to your day.
- Fruit has been known to wake us up quicker than coffee.
“I’m in favour of light later on in the day, but as a driver, the early morning changes can also spell trouble for some drivers.”
