Answer: It is recommended not to drive more than 300 miles per day without a break. Take a break every 50 miles for the next 100 miles. After driving for 400 miles in one day a person should sleep at least 5 hours and stretch for ten minutes before driving again.When driving for too long, your body goes into a sleeping awake state where awareness of the surrounding area diminishes at an accelerated rate. Drive too long and risk flying off the road!
Answer: It depends on how fast you drive. However, as an example, if you maintained an average speed of 65 mph, the time to drive the 2,442 miles from Pittsburgh PA to Long Beach CA would be about 37 hours and 34 minutes. You would have to add time for stops, detours and other delays.
