I used to drive a delivery van.
After a day of work heading back on the highway sometimes it was a struggle to stay awake. would like to have pulled over for a 15 minute nap, but
couldn't do that. I just..got ..to get off this highway, turn off the heat, straighten out my back, open the window, turn up the radio. Just got to
get off this boring highway.
I would catch myself nodding off, very scary!
Oh those red lights! I drifted off on a few of those.
So I understand how dozing off can happen before you realise it, but at least a pilot is less likely to hit a tree before he snaps out of it!
