Abstract

Sleepiness, fatigue and risky driving behaviours play a significant role in many accidents involving young drivers. Greater knowledge about sleepiness, fatigue and risky behaviours would help reduce serious accident rates for young drivers. The aim of this study was to examine young drivers’ self-reported attitudes, behaviours, knowledge of sleepiness, fatigue and time of day effects in relation to road safety
