INCREASED VISO-MOTORIC REACTION TIME OF YOUNG TIRED DRUNK DRIVERS

The viso-motoric reaction time of 71 young male drunk drivers was tested during the night at Glostrup police station, Copenhagen county. The persons tested were divided into three groups: rested, tired and very tired, and the group of very tired persons were shown to react significantly slower than the other two groups. The results are compared with official statistics showing tiredness as more important in night traffic accidents than generally assumed by the authorities.
