Sleepy drivers risk car accidents

Millions of UK drivers are exposing themselves to the possibility of car accident compensation claims by falling asleep at the wheel, recent research has revealed.

Road safety charity Brake and breakdown service Green Flag interviewed motorists all over Britain and made the shocking discovery that 7% of those questioned have dozed off behind the wheel on at least one occasion in the past year.

That equates to a shocking 2.3 million drivers and means that no motorist is safe from the danger of personal injury and the subsequent need for a no win, no fee solicitor to help pursue a car accident compensation claim.

The research also revealed that tired drivers often use a variety of highly dangerous methods in an attempt to keep themselves awake. These include turning up the stereo, opening the window and drinking cans of energy drinks, all of which are strongly advised against by experts.

A spokesman for Wheels At Once, the car accident compensation claim specialists, commented on the findings and said, "You're not just putting yourself at risk if you drive whilst tired, you're risking the lives of other motorists too.

"It's recommended that you stop for a break every two hours if you're on a long journey but if you are feeling tired then make sure you pull over somewhere safe and have a sleep."
