    Report: Singing motorists are safer drivers
    But rousing tunes, complex rhythms, can divert attention from road

    I used to have a 12 hour night shift job, with a 1hr travel time. I tried everything to keep myself awake- singing, having the windows down in minus 20 degree (Celcius) weather, slapping myself silly, pinching, pulling hair - it just wouldn't work for me. My eyelids got really heavy. I remember once falling asleep during an off ramp from the highway and waking up half way into the turn. . . I guess somebody else took the wheel from me in that brief moment - a heart pounding moment for sure. That event kept me awake, for another 5 minutes anyway.

    Thank God I have regular hours now, and closer to home.

    Wow, Rob,

    Definitely work near home - or buy a van with a bed in the back. No need to take yourself out - or others with you.

    I find that I can drive long distances fairly easily without nodding. Somehow I find the experience entertaining and rewarding. I've always felt that I was lucky that way.

    Stay safe, Rob!

    I just got back today from a 4000 mile total trip. I drove a little, but my fiance' (that sounds cool to say now!) is a driving machine. She drove for hours and hours and hours. Unreal.
    We did have an exciting moment driving through Yellowstone. A buffalo decided to walk out in to traffic and almost caused a huge wreck.
