Though I don't drive, I do have daytime sleepiness. In the last few years I've noticed times when I simply cannot keep my eyes open. I can make this go away by allowing myself to doze off in my chair for a few minutes. A driver with this problem would have big trouble, though, and this study shows that if you have MS, you may be more likely to have daytime sleepiness particularly during a long, monotonous drive than a healthier person.
