Almost one in five UK drivers have dozed off at the wheel, according to a report. Of them, three in ten did so on the motorway while doing up to 113km/h.
The study found a quarter of men have fallen asleep while driving, making them almost twice as likely as women (13 percent) to do so.
The Safety On Wheels report, by Post Office Car Insurance, looked at how often tiredness or a lack of concentration caused accidents.
Three in ten drivers have experienced an incident because of a lapse in concentration, from just missing a pedestrian crossing to hitting another vehicle.
Drivers are advised to take a 15-minute break from driving every two hours. However, a third are so eager to reach their destination they will ignore feelings of fatigue. Almost a fifth will drive for longer than four hours without a break. -Daily Mail
