Many fatal crashes are caused by driver fatigue. The extent that fatigue contributes to traffic accidents is higher than statistics indicate. Fatigue will seriously impair your driving ability long before you become drowsy.
Some of you work in remote areas and need to travel long distances to get to work. It is vitally important that you recognise the signs of fatigue and take the necessary precautions to reduce the chance of having a vehicle accident.
It is your responsibility to stop and rest when you realise that you are becoming fatigued.
By the end of this talk you will understand:
• the symptoms of fatigue;
• the causes of driver fatigue;
• how fatigue affects driving;
• how to prevent fatigue; and
• what to do when you are fatigued
