    So my buddy owns a company and he asked me if i wanted to work a trade show with him in Burlington VT(which is a 4 hour drive for me)....offered to put me up in a hotel and pay all my expenses plus $1000 bucks for 2 days of just standing around at a booth marketing his company at the show with him...

    Long story short after 2 nights of hard core partying and waking up early and standing around all day i was driving back home Friday afternoon and about 2.5 hours into my drive i dozed off and woke up after i slammed into a cement overpass bridge type thing.....i almost shit my pants....i thought i had gone and majorly fucked up my car....luckily I just have some major rash on my rims...well i guess more luckily is that i didnt kill anyone or myself

    glad you're ok. check your rims out, make sure they're straight, and then do it to the other side.

    That's good to hear you're fine! Driving tired is nuts. I've definitely fell asleep with my old 20 ft flat bad on cruise control before and I woke up in near the ditch many many times. Needless to say, I got the radio fixed for long drives so I didn't fall asleep to the elegant diesel engine.

    Wow, that's really scary. I almost fell asleep once, with the girlfriend in the car with me no-less.

    I'm glad you're alright, it'd suck to lose your life to something as stupid as not enough sleep.

    Do you guys have the same law as us Canadians?. If we are caught without sleeping for 12hrs while behind the wheel, we get roadside suspension. 600 people this weekend got busted in Ontario alone with this law. I don't know how they know, but they do.

    No, our laws don't mention sleep deprivation.

    I had a friend that did that too. He passed out driving back from some other city, four hard days and nights of playing shows, and partying. He didn't wake up till he was in the hospital for a couple days.

    Hahaha seriously, how do they enforce that? Unless people are stupid enough to tell them they haven't sleep.
