If you go on a long journey with a car or bike at night, then you should take care of 5 things. By taking care of these things, you can save yourself from being a victim of a road accident.
Avoid driving when you are not sleepy: Plan your journey in such a way that you get complete sleep and rest before starting the drive. But if you have not got the time, then postpone the time to start the drive a little but make sure that you have at least 8 hours of sleep. (Photo: Getty Images)
Avoid sleeping drugs or alcohol: Driving under the influence of alcohol is an offense. Being intoxicated will mean that you are not alert and are putting yourself and others at risk. Do not drink and drive, apart from this, you also need to avoid those medicines which can cause sleepiness. Medicines that come for allergies, cough and even epilepsy can be drowsy and can put you at risk. (Photo: Getty Images)
Take frequent breaks: While driving intermittently in the journey, plan your breaks only to get coffee/tea and fuel from time to time. You can also do this to give rest to the body. Exercise to stretch your body, do some push-ups if your mind and eyes are not calm then take a nap in the car to calm your eyes. (Photo: Getty Images)
