    i've driven the North-South highway back to Penang before. let me tell you, the drive can be tiring when things get monotonous. falling into the state of semi consciousness is a sure thing. falling asleep is a different story all together.

    normally, when you are in a state of semi consciousness and you don't do something about it, sleep will take over. and when this happens, everything around you is in danger and so are you.

    how i beat falling into semi consciousness while driving a long and monotonous drive is to vary my speed. when i'm speeding, my mind tends to be more alert and my reaction to events are sharper. but of course, i speed with responsibility lah.

    and when i'm fully charged up, i'll slow down and take in the greens around me.

    well, if you drive daily like wind30 and the rest, probably u might encounter this once or twice, seriously... dun tell me u drive 1000 times over the same route and never kena once... dun bluff yourself... if u drive only once in a while, then this is not for you to answer anyway...

    likewise, nothing endangers another when nothing happen... thats why there is a need for preventive measures to prevent the occurence...

    like regular checkups for elderly for their driving license, so on and so forth...

    If you think you are not safe, then get off the road, but if you think you are, then by all means stay... who are we to judge anyway? same as dangerous drivers, can we get them off the road with their car number when they did not signal and cut in?

    so you're endorsing reckless drivers and think that YOU shouldn;t do something to get them off the roads and endangering others?

    same goes to you, are you the traffic police or the judge to suspend wind30's license and get him off the road?

    who's the one name calling and acting like a 12 year old. In case you haven't noticed I haven't been calling for any suspension of his license. Stop putting words in my mouth.

    To be fair to Garou, I believe the getting off the road was merely a suggestion (not a direct order which is how your making it seem) if wind30 does not feel 100% behind the wheel or is experiencing some sort of consciousness problem.

    There is no need to get all high and mighty about it. Id expect better from superusers. Especially as he is trying to help people out, and who knows, possibly save lives!

    isn't that the same?

    who are we to ask him to get off the road when he feel perfectly fine... same goes to the rest of those who shares the same experiences...

    doesn't mean it don't happen to you now, it won't happen to you later, so if it does, will you at that immediate moment go check yourself into the IMH to do a brainscan and talk to a psychologist and/or psychiatrist?
