A lower cost alternative would be the combination of massive coffee, a Slayer album on ten and/or sensible scheduling. But of course I jest - I've taken this risk many times and I'm lucky to be alive. I hope this can get refined to be effective but yet non-intrusive.

I've heard about lane departure prevention systems. Is this a part of such thing? Or is it just a warning?
