Abstract

Young drivers are over-represented in motor vehicle accident (MVA) statistics. In particular, young drivers are at a higher risk of having a sleep-related accident. The current study examined whether an interactive program is capable of changing the behaviour of young drivers with regards to sleep and driving.
