Road transport crashes in new parents

Description 
Sleep deprivation is common in parents with babies up to 12 months of age. Sleep deprivation is also a significant risk factor for serious road transport crashes; around 20% of fatal road crashes involve driver fatigue. This project will explore the increased crash risk that is associated with sleep deprivation in new parents, and develop targeted countermeasures to reduce the risk of crashes in new parents.
