    Hi guys, let’s help us do some survey. IS IT TRUE THAT MEN ARE MORE LIKELY TO FALL ASLEEP WHILE DRIVING?. We need your comment and cooperation here. From our data, there are about 95% of this website readers are men. So it will be easy for us to do this survey.

    Below the details about the research undertaken by Australian insurer AAMI.

    According to research undertaken by Australian insurer AAMI, men are twice as likely as women to fall asleep at the wheel, drive four or more hours without a break, and to cause a crash through fatigue.The findings show that almost 72 percent of men would drive 2.5 hours or more without a break, compared to less than 60 percent of female drivers.

    More than a third of the respondents who admitted to falling asleep said they had been driving for only an hour when it happened, while a quarter of them said they’d been behind the wheel for two to three hours and only 30 per cent had been driving for four or more hours.

    Mr Anthony Durakovic, the AAMI Executive General Manager, said that the study wasn’t intended to suggest women are better-suited to driving than men, but to make a point of the importance of staying fresh and rested on long drives. “Along with speed and alcohol, fatigue is one of the main contributors to road fatalities and injuries,” Mr Durakovic said.

    As a guy we hope that you can defend yourself if do you think this research is not true. Your opinion?. Kongsi pendapat anda bersama-sama kami.

    Here are some tips to avoid fatigue given by AAMI:

    Avoid starting a trip at the end of the day.
    Ensure you are well-rested before you leave.
    Don’t drive when you would normally be asleep.
    Schedule regular rest breaks outside the vehicle – 10-15 min. rest every 90 min.
    Share the driving where possible.
    Never drink alcohol (not even small quantities) before or during long trips.
    Allow extra time and take a powernap if tired.

    SOME EXTRA TIPS FOY YOU ALL BY US.

    ·    Pull the car over in a safe area, such as a rest stop or petrol station, and walk around. Physical activity will get the blood circulating.
    ·    If you’re planning a long drive, make sure you get plenty of sleep prior to the trip to ensure your senses are at optimal performance.
    ·    If driving with other people, alternate drivers and sleep while you’re not driving.
    ·    When alternating drivers, make sure the next person is rested enough to start driving!
    ·    If driving alone – pull over and take a short nap. Make sure at night time, you are parked near a spot with light and people, to keep crooks away from you.
    ·    Place a few strands of hair in the sunroof, that way if you do start to nod off you will be awoken by a sharp pulling of your hair.
    ·    Drive with one hand on top of your head if you are comfortable driving with one hand. This works for me every time.

      aku selalu jugak ngantoks nie..stkt ni ok lagi.. :p

      tapi aku ada 1 tips yg aku belajar masa bulan puasa. mungkin ko leh letak kat senarai tu jugak kot..
      masa puasa kita jaga pemakanan kita. aku kalau drive masa tak puasa, ngantuk. tapi bulan puasa, balik raya, selalu drive tengah malam. tahan pulak 1 malam drive tak ngantuk walhal dah 1 hari puasa dan malamnya drive slo sebab banyak kereta. from KL to kota bharu. 6 – 7 hours usually bertolak midnight dansampai kelantan pagi.

      so..tips dia.. jaga pemakanan. food yg mengandungi kanji boleh menyebabkan mengantuk.
      erm..tak pandai jugak aku nak terangkan..tapi pemakanan memang bagi impak kepada kita utk mengantuk ke tidak.

      Saya setuju lelaki cepat mengantuk.My hubbypun selalu dalam 1-2 jam je dah ngantuk especially drive malam. Bila balik kampung saya yang selalunya drive half way sampai kampung…ish..ish..ish

    7. iz says:

      Yes, it’s. But not all man R like that. Many of man loves travel.
      This can happens when the man (1) tired, or something that make its sleepy when driving.
      Especially when driving alones.

      Experience, mmm. Yes, thats once when I’m back from having dinner. Im almost sleeping until i cross a red traffic light.
      That times only God knows what i being that time.

      Hmm.. pnah? Biler eh? x ingatla..aku slalu memang chergas kalo bawak kereta.

      Tapi kan, lelaki bawak kereta selalu tertido tu bukan sebab ape.. Sebab penat bekerja.. yela nak tampung anak bini.. pastu drive ngantuk2.. penat la tu.. ape salahnya bini yang dah banyak tido tlg drive.. kui2.. btol x?

    11. iz says:

      Owh..yg dulu accident tu bkn sebab ngntok eh?
      hehe..btol2…pnat kje nak tampung anak bini..balik lewat..buat overtime….pastu drive berjam2..hehe

    12. liquid says:

    13. kdi says:

      iz,

      ooo.. yang tu bukan sebab ngantuk ler.. yang tu dah tuhan nak uji kesabaran.. baru je lepas balik solat jumaat. mungkin jugak tuhan nak tunjuk kat aku kalo ponteng keje memang ada bala datang sebab masa tu aku baru nak memonteng.. haha.. padan muke aku. tapi tu salah motor tu ar x nampak aku bagi signal. xpasal2 je..
