We've all been there. You're on your way back from an interstate trip, it's late, all the roads are empty and appear to stretch on forever, while your eyelids seem to be getting heavier with every passing minute. Driving while tired can be downright dangerous, with some suggesting that a sleepy driver is actually worse on the road than a drunk one.

Apart from pulling over and taking a little nap, there are several other measures you can perform to ensure you'll be feeling your best behind the wheel. The travel bloggers over at our sister site Gadling have compiled them into a list for easy digestion. Most may seem like common sense, but these are things of which every driver, young or old, should be made aware.
