Night-shift Work Increases Dangerous Driving

It is no secret that drowsy drivers are more likely to have accidents. In fact, 20% of fatal accidents are caused by sleepy drivers. Boston researchers tested 16 night-shift workers while they drove on a special track following 7 hours of sleep or after a night or working. Near crashes occurred in 38% of tests following a night of work and none following sleep.
