According to the news item that is shown below, one in ten of us have fallen asleep or nodded off at the wheel of our motor vehicles in the last 12 months.

Has this actually happened to you and not necessarily in the last 12 months ?

If only I could zzzzzzzzzz, I would even consider doing it at the wheel of my car


I am crap at Need for Speed and Gran Turismo anyway, so losing more points for falling asleep isn't going to affect me that much


Seriously though I just find these figures quite incredible


I appreciate more than most that it can happen and that there can be so called "excuses" for it happening but one in ten drivers, surely not.......

If your looking for a new iPad game try drag racing. It's pretty good.

Btw that was drag RACING not drag dressing.

Cheers Grumps

Have you noticed how often that happens with producers of ipad games ?


Nearly 7000 user give it 5 stars and then they do an "upgrade" and suddenly 65 people who have upgraded to the new version give it two stars and complain that it freezes or won't load.

I must admit I haven't played it much since it was updated but it works okay for me.

You can get some help videos from YouTube for it.

Once I nearly done it about 15years ago thought I could drive from France all the way home within one day shut ma eyes for a few sec 's when I was driving past Carlyle i think, i had been driving a sum 8 maybe ten hours by that time gave myself a right fright as i felt the bumps of the cats eyes gave me a jolt, as hubby was sleeping in the passenger seat at the time.
now we always book somewhere halfway up from down south or abroad when driving, to risky plus we take more breaks, have a rest and be refreshed it's not worth it.
Oops tell a lie found it hard to stay awake from night shift when I worked in Edinburgh and traveled home to Glasgow, forgot about that.Edited by: wilma08
