Abstract Background: Very little is known about the characteristics of sleep related (SR) crashes occurring on low speed roads compared with current understanding of the role of sleep in crashes occurring on high speed roads e.g. motorways. To address this gap, analyses were undertaken to identify the differences and similarities between (1) SR crashes occurring on roads with low (<= 60 km/h) and high (>= 100 km/h) speed limits, and (2) SR crashes and not-SR crashes occurring on roads with low speed limits.
