How Do You Stay Awake While Driving?

Just had a though as I did my weekly two hour drive back to school, what tricks do you guys have to keep yourself awake if you feel like your getting sleepy while driving?

I personally like to chew gum (for some reason that helps) and to give myself a couple "light" smacks to the cheek

Didn't see a thread like this, sorry if there something similar already

Pull over and take a walk, get some fresh air, have a cup of coffee or iced tea.
2nd time I get the feeling, it's time to pull off and catnap for 20 or 30.

But that's on 8-10 hour road trips.
If you're getting drowsy on a 2 hour drive, you aren't getting enough sleep the night before you leave.

Sing.

Roll down windows.

Stop, get out, walk around, get a soda.

I sing and roll the windows down. Or I drink water and savagely punch myself in the crotch while humming the indiana jones theme

In the past, I've actually dozed off at a red light.... a handful of times. I was awakened by horns blaring.

Turn up the radio and ac will liven you up.

I've got a few long drives coming up. If I start in the morning I usually get tired at about 3-4 pm. I need to stay awake! Sound of my tires puts me to sleep. And driving is relaxing to me. I'm not much of a singer though!

Wasn't referring to me getting sleepy, just a thought that popped into my head
