Getting a good night’s sleep not only makes you feel better, but it can help you avoid a car accident. Drivers are at their best when they have had at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep the night before, according to a recent report by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety.

From the report, compared to drivers who got 7-8 hours of sleep a night:

  • 6-7 hours had 1.3 times crash rate
  • 5-6 hours had 1.9 times the crash rate
  • 4-5 hours had 4.3 times the crash rate
  • Less than 4 hours had a 11.5 times the crash rate.
