Proper sleep & food can save your life when driving

  • Body & Brain

    We forget that the brain is inextricably tied to the body. If your body doesn't get enough sleep or healthy food, it impacts your brain, putting you in even more danger while driving. Learn strategies for sleeping and eating better to reduce serious injury and fatalities on the road.

  • Power of Sleep

    The adolescent brain needs at least 9.5 hours of sleep per night according to experts. Far too many young people get closer to 6. This means your concentration, energy, focus and ability to make quick decisions is compromised. That's a deadly combination when you're driving.

  • Food to Fuel Your Brain

    Discover how your choice of what to eat significantly influences your brain's functioning and development. Find out how dangerous the wrong foods are for young people who are driving. Learn what foods fuel your brain's top performance and growth which can keep you safe.
