A new device has been designed which sets off an alarm if it detects a driver is dozing off.
The company behind the ‘ISAFE anti-doze device’ claims that two million drivers in the UK fall asleep while driving every year, resulting in 400 deaths. The ISAFE lodges behind a driver’s ear, and if the head nods forward 20 degrees it sets off an alarm.
Jonathan Long, from Trade Developments, said: “Falling asleep at the wheel kills; the ISAFE helps to prevent this from happening. Every driver should have this device in their car as a precaution for those long journeys where there is a greater danger of dozing off at the wheel.”
The ISAFE costs £9.99 including p&p. Click here for more information.
