The Thompson Local News


Manitoba Public Insurance is urging drivers to stay awake while behind the wheel.

 

According to the crown corporation, a recent poll suggests that half of the 800 people surveyed admit to driving while feeling drowsy at least once including while driving on long road trips.

 

MPI Vice President Ward Keith says that traffic on highways typically increases during the summer months and that some may be tempted to push themselves to drive longer to get where they’re going more quickly.  He added that they strongly encourage all drivers to act responsibly, and to pull over and rest when you become too tired to drive.

 

Fatigue warning signs to watch for include uncontrollable yawning, trouble keeping your eyes open, drifting within your lane and not being able to remember the last few kilometres that have passed.

 

There is an average of 83 collisions annually due to driver fatigue in Manitoba, and statistics indicate that over the past decade around seven of those crashes every year result in a fatality or serious injury.
