A survey has found that men are more likely to drive on less than five hours' sleep than women.
A higher proportion of men also admitted to having drifted off behind the wheel.
The data, collected by road safety charity Brake and insurance firm Direct Line, found the following:
- Almost half (49%) admitted to driving after less than three hours' sleep
- Men (55%) were more likely than women (45%) to drive after less than five hours' sleep
- Only 2% of women drivers have drifted off compared with 14% of men
