Poem on Driving When Tired

Drive and Nod

 –

Driving down highway fast,

Hope alertness will last.

Want to get home to bed

Finally to rest my head.

 –

Busy throughout the day,

More at work than at play.

My head it starts to nod,

Steadily home I plod.

 –

Open eyes, hear rumble,

Swerved to road edge rubble.

Adrenaline kicks in.

Alert now, so begin.

 –

Driving down highway fast,

Hope alertness will last.

Want to get home to bed

Finally to rest my head.

–                     -June Nash

You ever have a long hard day at work?   On the way home you feel yourself start to get sleepy, but you keep going, thinking you will be able to stay awake.  Once the adrenaline kicks in after a near miss, you don’t pull over because you think you are now awake.  The cycle continues.

I think driving tired can sometimes be more dangerous than driving drunk.
