Summer is over! ... In the Car – Avoiding "SSDD" (start of school drowsy driving) Experienced by Teens Just because summer vacation is over doesn't mean you get to relax as an instructor. With school starting, most of your students will now be coming to you after first having spent all day in school, and in some cases after post-school sports practice. Already short on sleep, teens may be even more likely to be experiencing disabling fatigue and/or drowsiness. That means higher risk for everyone during In-car training sessions. It is your job as the instructor to recognize and address any signs of fatigue/drowsiness before and during the lesson. Be aware of students that exhibit: Droopy eyes Constant yawning Muscle tiredness Watery eyes Constantly rubbing of eyes Confusion If you are using pre-planned routes it should be easier to recognize signs of fatigue, although up to half of drivers will exhibit no such signs before falling fast asleep. Two key signs that instructors should watch out for include (a) students easily forgetting instructions, and (b) making steering and visual errors. As the instructor, you have a couple of options in this situation. Your first option is cancel the lesson, if the signs of fatigue are so overwhelming that you do not feel the student can safely continue. The second option is to pull off the road (a safe, empty parking lot is preferred) and have the student get out of vehicle, stretch and help set up cones for parallel parking practice. This activity will get the student out of the vehicle and provide them and you with a needed break. Beware of fatigue among your students. They probably are not getting all the sleep they need (at least 9 hours a night), and they may be quite tired by the time they show up to work with you on their driving skills. http://www.dmv.virginia.gov/drivers/#dic/dicinfo.asp?location=N+Chesterfield
