Is it true that once the effects of a stimulant wear off the driver could quickly fall asleep?

That is true. Most stimulants work by binding to excitatory neurotransmitter receptors (such as the case with amphetamines), inducing the release of excitatory neurotransmitters (such as dopamine and norepinephrine, in the case of amphetamines), preventing the breakdown of excitatory neurotransmitters (as in the case of Ritalin, cocaine, etc.), or blocking inhibitory receptors (as in the case of caffeine). When this happens, the brain adjusts by reducing its sensitivity to its own excitatory neurotransmitters...especially in the case of adrenaline (epinephrine), noradrenaline (norepinephrine), and dopamine. So, once the stimulant wears off, the body is not only fatigued again, but is actually MORE sleepy than before...making it very easy to fall asleep.
