Cheap car insurance can be found by going with an online specialist broker and allowing them to search the marketplace on your behalf, however cheap insurance could soon be a thing of the past after a startling survey recently conducted revealed that millions of drivers are risking having to claim on their insurance because of an accident caused by them falling asleep behind the wheel of their car.
In September 2007 one of the leading breakdown services together with road safety charity Brake announced that over 2 million motorists are thought to nod off whilst being behind the wheel. Many of the motorists asked admitted that they relied on infective methods to help them keep awake while making long journeys. A startling 78% of those questioned relied on cracking the widow of their car open to let some air in or listening to music as aids to keep the awake rather than pulling over and taking a short nap.
Good advice to follow when making a long car journey is to get a good nights sleep the night before, be aware of the dangers that just nodding off or dozing for even a second can have on not only you but also other drivers and to take a break every couple of hours and if needed pull over and take a quick nap.
