Drivers who are feeling drowsy should pull over and rest rather than put themselves and others at risk. Sleep-deprived people, according to a nationally renowned sleep expert, have decision-making skills that are 50 percent worse than a well-rested person and reaction times are 50 percent worse. Rest areas, such as this one near Custer on northbound Interstate 5, are a great place to stop and rejuvenate.
