In a recent study it has been found that teen and young adult drivers that start classes earlier in the day are more likely to be involved in auto accidents. This was discovered by taking note of the number of young adults that are involved in early morning accidents and their class schedules.
The American Academy of Sleep Medicine conducted the study and found that those students with early schedules are often subject to sleep deprivation and sleep disorders that do not allow them to get the proper amount of sleep to be safe when driving in the early morning hours. Those peers that attend high schools that have later start times are far less likely to be involved in a motor vehicle accident than those that start earlier in the morning.
