Driver Alert Master – avoid falling asleep at the wheel


Apparently, one in five road accidents are caused by drowsiness or fatigue. The solution to that is obviously not to drive when you’re tired. But if tiredness creeps up on you, the Driver Alert Master from Maplin Electronics could keep you awake and safe.

The Driver Alert Master is a sensory device which fits around the ear whilst driving and will alert you with a loud beeping noise, if your head drops forward when nodding off. It’s designed for long journeys – and as such, is comfortable when worn for long periods.

No substitute for pulling over and having a break, but it is a back up and available for just £4.99.
