What can happen if you ignore signs of tiredness?

Ignoring this could lead to what is called microsleep – a natural brief and unconscious shutdown that could last from the moment it takes the eye to shut down to up to 10 seconds. At this time, the driver cannot be aware of what is going on on the road or interact in any way, or try to control what is happening since he is unconscious. Fatigue also leads to a reduced ability to focus which reduces possibilities of attending to aspects of driving and leads to increased incidences of driving mishaps. These accidents range from small to more severe ones, that may endanger the driver as well as other users of the road.
