Changes in routine during Ramazan may impact driving


Drivers need to exercise extra caution during fasting in Ramadan as drivers’ abilities may get compromised due to alterations to eating, drinking and sleeping patterns. A statement issued by DIG Motorway North Zone Muhammad Yosuf Malik here on Saturday said that drivers may experience tiredness, sleepiness or weakness behind the wheel.

Medical experts advise that people with underlying health conditions, such as diabetes, should take extra precautions before setting off on a long journey. To ensure a safe journey, it is recommended that drivers get adequate sleep .
