LACK OF SLEEP DANGEROUS FOR TEEN DRIVERS Cause Car Accidents

| May 13, 2014 | Uncategorized

Teen drivers face many risks on the road and have the highest risk of being killed in a car accident. Car accidents are still the leading cause of death for teen drivers. In fact, drivers between 16 and 19 years old are three times more likely to be in a car accident compared to drivers older than 19, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.Why are teen drivers more likely to be killed in a car accident? There are several factors, including lack of driving experience and unsafe driving behaviors. Now, a new study is adding another factor to that list: sleep deprivation.A new study suggests that lack of sleep is a serious risk for teen drivers, and sleep deprivation may be another common reason why teenagers are more likely to be in a car accident. Our article on car accidents discusses the study’s findings in greater detail and explains why sleep deprivation is so dangerous for teenagers.The National Highway Traffic Safety Foundation reported that lack of sleep is a serious issue for drivers under the age of 25. They reported that sleep deprivation is attributed to 1,550 fatal car accidents every year in the United States.It is not that surprising that not getting enough sleep would increase the chances of getting into a car accident. Sleep deprivation can increase the chances of falling asleep behind the wheel as well as make it more difficult to concentrate on the road and safely operate your vehicle.All drivers should be aware of the dangers sleep deprivation has on their driving ability and make sure they are not too tired before getting behind the wheel.
