We have reported many cases where the drivers fall asleep on the steering wheel. The time after 1 AM or early mornings like 4 AM is particularly unsafe for driving. People often think that they will not fall asleep or will sleep in the car if they feel tired. However, people don’t even realize when their eyes get closed. Before you know it, it is already too late. Therefore, we advise our readers to never take this for granted. Either don’t travel at night at all, or make sure to take enough rest before doing so.
