When we conducted a survey targeting men and women in their teens to 60s nationwide, asking, “What do you do to keep yourself from falling asleep while driving?” result in %.

by gender

Looking at the results by gender, there was a slight difference in each item. The most common answer for both men and women was “listen to your favorite music,” and about half of them chose it.
Looking at the items that men answered more, they take measures against sleepiness by ingesting things such as drinking coffee, energy drinks, and smoking cigarettes, but women just talk to their companions, It seems that they tend to take countermeasures by changing the environment, such as opening windows.
The item with the widest gender difference was “talk to your companion anyway”, with 26.7% of women and 13.7% of men, a difference of 13%. It is one of the very effective methods because talking can activate the brain and suppress drowsiness.

Looking at the results by age group, the results for the top two items were the same for all age groups, but there was a difference between age groups after the third place.
“Singing” was cited as an item that showed a noticeable difference, with about 20% of those in their 30s and 40s and about 10% of those in their 50s and 60s and above, about 40% of those in their 10s and 20s feeling sleepy. I understand that it is used as a wake-up measure. Among people in their teens and twenties, there are more people who drive when traveling with friends rather than driving on a daily basis. Hmm.
By moving the mouth and throat muscles, the brain is activated, and at the same time, you can sing your favorite song to increase the tension, and it seems that you can enjoy driving.
In addition, the method of “opening the window” is also ranked in the top five items in all ages, and it can be seen that it is adopted as a first aid method.
Opening the windows for fresh air and lowering the CO2 concentration inside the car is said to be effective in suppressing drowsiness. Especially in winter, you feel refreshed by touching the cold air. Presence of children

Next, looking at the presence or absence of children, 54.4% of those who “have children” answered “drink coffee”, surpassing “listen to your favorite music”, which was the number one overall.
It is well known that the caffeine contained in coffee has a stimulating effect, but in families with small children, consideration was given not to wake the sleeping child in the car. maybe.
Respondents who “smoke” outnumbered those who answered “no children”, and it can be inferred that many quit smoking after having children. In the survey this time, more people took measures that they could do while driving rather than setting a time for breaks.
Only a few more to leave this year. During the year-end and New Year holidays, you may have more opportunities to drive when you go back to your parents’ home or travel, but please refer to the items in this questionnaire, take breaks as needed, and enjoy your vacation by driving safely.
