People who have to drive long distance usually drink coffee to keep themselves awake and alert. A German doctor, however, warned that motorist tend to overestimate the effectiveness of beverages with high caffeine content.

Just grabbing a coffee before you set off is not of much help. It takes anything up to half an hour before the refreshing effect of caffeine kicks in – a lot of people do not take that into consideration.

The doctor recommends drinking a cup of coffee, followed by a catnap. After drinking an espresso, a nap lasting between 10 and 20 minutes should make the driver fit for a journey of up to two hours. Using this method, the recovery gained through sleep reinforces the stimulation caused by the caffeine.
