Countermeasures: Rumble Strips

If you hit a shoulder rumble strip, pull off the road as soon as possible. Rumble strips are deep grooves placed on high-speed roads utilized by highway authorities to alert drowsy drivers and prevent them from veering off the roadway. They were first introduced on the New Jersey Turnpike in 1952 and have proven to be one of the most effective measures in decreasing drowsy driving.
