While driving, some reasons for losing consciousness can not be prevented while others can not, he said.
Preventive causes include patients with diabetes who do not take medication and then they are black because blood sugar levels go down and patients with epileptic seizures can stop medication and sudden disturbances.
The causes, such as stroke, can not be avoided, Johnson added.

Goh E Shaun, an emergency medical specialist at the Raffles Hospital and Accident Emergency Department, said it is important to sleep enough before a long road to rest. When fatigue is created on the way, it is important to take a break when it is advisable.

"If they do not fit, they will not drive, because there are a lot of time on the wheel," he said.
But if the driver is losing consciousness or does not add something he anticipates.
"If you do not feel good, you should stop the car and get medical help and continue with the trip," said Mr. Tay, who added this to any driver.
Furthermore, if the drivers were aware that the driver was well aware, they would have to give them advice on how to stop the car safely in one area, which would have to continue to compromise.
If the driver gets black, Mr. Tay has told travelers that they should consider the environment and that the reaction time does not have enough.
He suggested that some netizens propose to drive the vehicle's drive: "If you move on a fast-moving brake, it will turn your car and it's very dangerous. Considering any reaction factor in the face of mobile vehicles."
Mr Pereira added that the new car models have hand-held brakes, and maybe even passengers are not easy and open.
Mr. Tay also said that the passenger could turn on the risk of the vehicle's risks, because they would tell other drivers or if they tried to control it under the guidance, depending on the situation.
This is difficult if passengers are not professional drivers or trained and managed, such as security courses.
Pereira said: "It could cause a driver to travel (to the passengers), I would use the steering wheel and I would move the car to the corner or the nearest corner, and I will try to take the driver's right leg with the accelerator.
"But a person who does not drive may not know that."
For drivers who come across a vehicle with uncontrolled vehicles, it advises Pereira to slow down as much as possible and warn them to warn the driver to sleep.
