Caffeine Supplements and Drowsy Driving
There has recently been a lot of attention regarding the dangers of texting while driving, but there are also other activities that can be dangerous to motorists. For example, many drivers choose to travel late at night or in the early hours of the morning and rely on large doses of caffeine to stay awake. Caffeinated drinks and supplements may give drivers a quick boost of energy in order to fight fatigue, but they can also be harmful when used over long distances.
Drivers under heavy doses of caffeine put themselves and other drivers at serious risk on the road. If you or a loved one has been in an accident because of a negligent driver, you may be eligible for compensation.

Potential Side Effects of Caffeine
Though caffeine can give drivers a quick jolt of energy to keep them alert behind the wheel, caffeine can have serious side effects on a driver. Such side effects may include:
- Anger and frustration
- Panic attacks
There is no good substitute for a full night’s rest, and you should not get behind the wheel of a car if you have been deprived of sleep or are fighting to stay awake. If a sleep deprived or otherwise impaired driver caused your car accident, you may be eligible for compensation for your accident-related expenses.
