Are Cars Making You Sleepy?

Many parents have told me that a trick to make their kids sleepy is to put them in the car and go for a drive.  It’s not just about the kids, either. A study finds that there’s something about a car ride that can give way to sleepiness.

The study found that the vibrations associated with the car in-motion can make a person sleepy in a matter of 15-minutes. As you’re busy driving to your destination, you are being entranced by the engines purr.

Although this sounds delightfully pacifying for passengers who need not worry about keeping alert – what does this mean for ride-share renegades? If you’re an Uber or Lyft driver, you may want to keep an spray nearby to keep you refreshed when the vibrations lull you.
