NEERA KATWAL, T.J. KAMALANABHAN

Abstract




The present study determines a few differences between accident free drivers and drivers with a history of accidents. 30 public transport bus drivers with a record of road accidents were compared with 30 public transport drivers free of accidents on their knowledge of road rules an regulations, subjective well being, state and trait anxiety, and locus of control. The data was analyzed using t-tests and the results showed that drivers with a history of accidents had a poor knowledge of road rules and regulations, had a lower score on well being, were state and trait anxious and had an external locus of control. Differences in their personal background and habits have also been discussed
