There are a lot of things we do to keep awake while driving and a recent survey found out the top ten things.

According to PR Newswire, here is how the survey rounded out:

  1. Drink something with caffeine in it.  53% said it’s one thing they do to stay awake.
  2.  Open a window, 42%.
  3.  Switch drivers, 42%.
  4.  Pull over to stretch, 35%.
  5.  Crank up the radio, 35%.
  6.  Crank the A/C, 25%.
  7.  Pull over for a nap, 23%.
  8.  Eat something, 21%.
  9.  Sing along to the radio, 21%.
  10.  Listen to talk radio, 14%.

Talking to yourself just missed the top ten, with 11%.  And 10% of people say they just start slapping themselves.

What is your trick to staying awake that didn’t make the list, tell us below in the comments.
