IN THE LAST YEAR OR SO, MOST NOTICEABLY RANGING 50K MILEAGE, I'VE STARTED FALLING ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL. I'VE NEVER FALLEN ASLEEP DRIVING NOR HAVE I FELT THIS WAY WHILE OPERATING ANY OF THE 4 VEHICLES I'VE OWNED. IT HAPPENS DURING MY COMMUTE TO/FRO WORK GENERALLY 40-70 MINUTES LONG, LONG AND SHORT DRIVES BUT MORE OFTEN ON COMMUTE AND 30 MIN OR LONGER TRIPS. ITS AT RANDOM AND I'VE ANALYZED ITS NOT THE BASIC AND OBVIOUS ISSUES CAUSING IT; LACK OF SLEEP, FOOD, ADEQUATE HYDRATION ETC. IT GOT SO BAD I COULD NOT DRIVE TO WORK IN THE MORNING OR EVENINGS WITHOUT PULLING OVER AND TAKING A 20 MINUTE NAP. SOMETIMES ITS WORSE THAN OTHER TIMES AND IT FEELS LIKE I'M PASSING OUT, NOT QUITE TIRED AND DROWSY, I AM ALL-OUT CAN'T KEEP MY EYES OPEN, ROLLING EYES, HEAD BOBBING. EVENTUALLY WHEN I MAKE IT HOME SAFE, THINKING I'LL GO TO BED RIGHT AWAY I AM ALERT AND ACTIVE ALL NIGHT - THIS IS THE BEHAVIOR OVER AND OVER. I'VE DISCUSSED WITH THE DOCTOR AS WELL AND I'VE BEEN GENERALLY FATIGUED FOR A FEW YEARS NOW, I'VE OWNED THE PRIUS SINCE 2011. SOMEONE SAID ONLINE IN A FORUM "ITS A COMMON OCCURRENCE OF PEOPLE WHEN THEY'RE EXPOSED TO HIGH LEVELS OF ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATION TO FEEL EXTREMELY TIRED AND FATIGUED." BUT FOLKS SAY ITS NOT ENOUGH TO CAUSE THIS TYPE OF BEHAVIOR. ANOTHER USER ALSO MENTIONS FALLING ASLEEP IN THIS FORUM (JUNE 5TH 2013) AND THERE'S BEEN OTHER NOTATIONS ON THE INTERNET, FOR EXAMPLE HTTP://PRIUSCHAT.COM/THREADS/PRIUS-EMF-RADIATION-AND-TOYOTAS-BOLD-FACE.116044/PAGE-6#IXZZ2VYI4P2S7.
