Lower Teen Crashes By Sleepign In

High schools in Virginia Beach, VA start 75-80 minutes earlier than high schools in neighboring Chesapeake (w/ similar demographics). Research found Virginia Beach crash rates were significantly higher and peak crash times were one hour earlier than peak Chesapeake crash times.

A previous post highlighted the benefit of starting school late, to afford for teens sleeping needs.
