Caffeine and Driving

Many people have had a drowsy feeling while behind the wheel. Your eyelids grow heavier as you fight to stay awake during each passing mile. It is at this moment that many people stop for a cup of coffee, energy drink, or a supplement with high doses of caffeine to keep them awake and alert. And while caffeine can keep you focused for a little while, it can also cause serious side effects and could be dangerous if taken in large doses over a long period of time.

Drivers who operate a motor vehicle with very little sleep and high amounts of caffeine could endanger not only their own lives but those of others on the road as well. If you or a loved one has been injured due to a negligent driver, contact Your Iowa car accident lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C., at (515) 705-0233. You may be eligible to receive financial compensation.

Potential Side Effects of Caffeine

You should never rely solely on caffeine to stay awake while driving. Caffeine can have some serious side effects, including:

  • High blood pressure
  • Jitteriness
  • Anger and frustration
  • Agitation
  • Confusion
  • Dehydration

If you plan on driving late at night, you should make sure to get a good night’s sleep. Drivers should never operate a motor vehicle if they are feeling tired or fatigued.
