    I feel like the combined risk of dying or getting arrested versus just dying makes the sleepy option more attractive. Also, just get a box o' joe from Dunkin' Donuts and go wild.

      Actually, if you are driving while you are so tired you can't safely operate your car, you can be arrested for reckless driving even if you're stone cold sober.

      You are right. But I have driven both drunk and sleepless. Drunk doesn't affect my mental alertness that much. But being sleepy almost caused me an accident a few times. Also, it doesn't say at what speed.

      the only way to be up for 3 days is stimulant abuse, at which point you are hallucinating from sleep deprivation. imjussayin

      caffeine doesn't make you less sleepy, it will just take you longer till you're falling asleep. so you would still be super sleepy, slow, and with shitty reflexes.

      it doesn't say you are tired or drowsy. You've already been awake for 72 hours, is 3 more going to hurt that much? Just drink a monster. "Oh that's not healthy" Neither is drinking alcohol...

      @Epic808 : 1. "It doesn't say that you're tired or drowsy." - well I want to hear you saying that you are not tired after being awake for 3 full days. 2. "You've already been awake for 72 hours, is 3 more going to hurt that much?" - First of all, it get's worse for every 10 mins that are passing in you're still awake. Second of all, The point is not that you have to stay awake for a couple more hours, but you also have to drive a vehicle in that time. 3. "Just drink a monster." - Caffeine doesn't make you less sleepy, it just extends the time till you'll fall asleep. meaning that all of your actions and reaction would still be hella slow.

    253 thousand people don't even know how bad sleep deprivation of 72 hours is. I would rather drive 200 miles drunk ten drive 3 days sleep deprived. if you think about it its a bigger risk driving while falling asleep every minute and waking up with a close call, you would get into a car accident driving sleep deprived that long, I would know.

      It depends on how well you can handle sleep deprivation to be honest. If you get into a car drunk and drive for 200 miles you will probably crash and die anyway

    If you don't sleep for more than three days you get severe hallucinations and you pretty much lose your mind by being awake any longer than that. Your death would be guaranteed.

    A 200 mile trip would suck but think about it, 200 miles is only like a 3 1/2 hour drive if you're on the highway. Sure, it would be agonizing after not getting any sleep but it's not like you're traveling across the country. (Also, I voted wrong)

      what he meant was that the legal blood intoxication levels in almost every state (America) is .008. That's about 1 or 2 beers (depending how strong) or only 1 shot of anything more than 30 proof. 1 shot of anything more than 60 proof is already legally too much, though most drinkers don't feel anything unless their blood intoxication level is .018+, unless you are a light weight. On a technical level, it doesn't take that much before you are over the limit, but it is still illegal. on the other hand, the other option doesn't say I have to be tired either. I've been awake for 72 hours already, 3 more wont hurt, less if I'm speeding. I can just take a Monster to keep me awake for that.

      According to the question you have to drive while having been awake for 72 hours. So you can't sleep. I've also driven after being awake for only 48 hours and I was micro-sleeping at the wheel so much I had to get my friend to drive the rest of the way back.

    Driving sleepy is shown to be just as dangerous as drunk, hallucinations and things like that, but i've never been drunk before so i don't know what kind of drunk i am. At least if i'm just tired i could take it slow to make sure i don't die.
