WHEELIE SLEEPY

New Zealand Listener - - THISLIFE -

Peo­ple who sleep for less than four hours a night are 15.1 times more likely to have a sin­gle­car ac­ci­dent than those who sleep for seven to nine hours. Re­search pub­lished in SLEEP found that four to six hours of sleep also in­creased sin­gle-car ac­ci­dent risk, although not as much. Other risk fac­tors were chang­ing sleep or work sched­ules in the pre­vi­ous week and driv­ing for three or more hours with­out a break.
