Have you ever nodded off momentarily while driving?
Even on my motorcycle.
I know more about this subject than most people because it my job. If you said no. You either haven’t been driving very long or you are in the 1% of people that this is true for. Look up micro sleeps.
One time, and it’ll never happen again. I almost ran into a stop sign less than a mile from my house
Been tired before while driving, but never to the point where I doze off.
Definitely scary to be staring at the road and think that all you did was blink but then realize you've traveled at least three miles completely asleep with thoughtful people putting on their high beams to try and wake you up.
Yup. Apparently drove a quarter of a mile, drifted from the left lane to the right shoulder and bounced off the wall (was like 1am, only car on the interstate. Popped both passenger side tires and scared the shit out of me.
No. But before I was back and forth to work on my bike without safety glasses on I would momentarily close my eyes while it was raining.
Driving a bike. Lol
Only once. It scared me to death
I will zone out and not realize how I got somewhere.
So I should avoid the Ohio area?
Somehow I survived all of senior year of high school without doing that
More than momentarily. I flipped my truck on its side.
I did once and learned my lesson. Ended up rear ending a car on the highway. Going 60+ mph. No damage done to either vehicle. I stopped and slept in my car for several hours after that. Was driving 16 hours from Oklahoma to Ohio.
Everytime I drive, regardless of how tired I am.
You might want to have a sleep study done. Maybe you have sleep apnea.
I do. I wake up all the time from not breathing, but I couldn't fall asleep with the CPAP on when I tried it last year.
I hate sleeping when driving.
Especially when you’re getting a good nap then suddenly the forward collision warning goes BEEP BEEP BEEP!
I don't understand how you could let yourseld do that while doing something so dangerous. I've driven while very sleep deprived, kept myself up by singing and dancing in my seat. Gotta keep that O2 going into your brain.
Once and never again.
Yes. Have to get enough sleep before a long road trip or the eyelids get lead weights on some boring stretches of highway.
Used to a LOT. I could see a sign doing 40-50 mph, fall asleep, dream, and wake up before I even passed the sign. It was freaky.
Me too! Used to all the time on the way home when I worked downtown.
In college, my dorm roommate had been drinking at a bar downtown and begged me to pick him up... 3 minutes after I took and ambien. I got downtown alright. I don’t remember getting back to campus.
I have nodded off while someone is speaking to me. Totally embarrassing
This happened to me a while back after taking a red eye flight to LA. So embarrassing!!!
Disturbing to think people would be that careless.
Wound up rolling across a chunk of high desert in central Wyoming, way off the highway, still at 55 mph. Pretty rough, and noisy enough to wake me up. More gas and a gentle curve got me back on the pavement OK. I was 19 and thought I could drive from Tacoma to St Louis without stopping except for gas and snacks. Nope. First and last time. I rarely drive or ride for much more than 14-16 hours at a stretch these days, and if I get even a little drowsy (very rare), I stop.
Nod off meaning falling into a subconscious state? Or like falling asleep? Because if you mean subconscious, I let my subconscious self drive most the time...
Don’t ever drive while on pain killers
No, although I have come close on several occasions. I'm good about knowing when to stop for a break.
It’s difficult for me to go to sleep because I don’t relax very easily.
Yes... driving back-and-forth from school.
