What are the danger signs of sleepiness at the wheel?

The danger signs are doing things to keep yourself awake, such as shifting around in the seat, opening the window or gripping the wheel hard.

Although drivers don't remember feeling sleepy before an accident, at the time they are, of course, aware that they feel tired. When fighting sleep, you must be aware that you are already sleepy, and do something about it immediately.
