The attention you need in driving / riding, the fun of driving, the intake growl, the exhaust note, watching other vehicles and the way others drive, the scenic beauty of some roads, the mad rush in cities, etc, infact everything on road keeps me awake. I have never felt my alert level going down so far, don't know whats will happen as my age gets its increments .
Some good music, a chai/water/ciggie stop also helps.

The headlights from our friendly truckers & buses make sure i stay awake all night.
I don't have the misfortune to go to boring meetings, but i do have a suggestion, just look down at some literature, shake your head slowly & get yourself a nice little nap of 2-3 mins, will make you reasonably fresh.

in office, go to the loo and take a quick nap there. Someone's guaranteed to wake u up inadvertently in 15-20 mins

What keeps me awake on long drives?
Hmm, let me think..
a) Lack of food - I avoid eating two hours before a long journey (of say over 5/6 hours) and generally go on a fast during the course of a long drive.
b) Tea, though only in small quantity.
c) My wife.
