    A tip I was given over 30 years ago : if you start feeling drowsy, chew some gum. I’m not sure why it helps, but there’s quite a bit about the subject online, including some research at Coventry University confirming it, and a theory that it stimulates facial muscles causing an increase in blood flow to the head. I always keep some chewing gum in the van for use on long boring drives and it works for me – I never feel drowsy while I’m chewing.

    As has been said by others commenting this is good common sense advise but I would like to add that as someone over 70 and closing in on 75 in order that I retained C1 on my driving licence ( I drive a Motorhome over 3500 kg and have done for over 14 years) I have had to undergo a medical every 3 years but I do wonder how many other over 70’s who drive motorhomes over 3500kg do so but without a C1 on their driving licence.

    This article should be aimed at ALL drivers not just the older age group. We have followed this common sense rule for the last 30 odd years!!!!
