Car insurance: Motorists given tiredness warning

Monday, 11 August 2008

Motorists in the UK can keep their car insurance policies intact by refraining from taking to the road while tired.

The Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) has stated that travelling while feeling fatigued is dangerous - calling it a silent killer.

Wearing loose and comfortable clothing can alleviate the problem, as can taking significant rest before travelling, the group added.

IAM remarked that taking to the road at times of the day normally reserved for sleeping should also be avoided, while reminding drivers to take regular breaks from their trip.

It could be that by following these tips, motorists find that they do not invalidate their car insurance policies.

In February 2001, sleep-deprived driver Gary Hart's vehicle veered onto railway tracks in Selby.

A train travelling at more than 120mph collided with the automobile.

Mr Hart was subsequently sentenced to five years in prison.
