ISLAMABAD – The National Highways & Motorway Police have introduced a device to keep drivers from falling asleep during driving.

The authority also claimed that the alarm-based device will significantly reduce the rate of accidents on the motorways.

The gadget is designed to be worn on their ears and it worked with the sensors that set off an alarm when a driver’s head tilts forward due to sleep. The alarm is a loud beep that sounds off near the ears of the driver.

The actual cost of the device is Rs750 but it will be made available for public use with a discounted price of Rs300 – with the help of an unnamed donor.
