The Impact of Demographics, Driving Stress, Driving Behaviors Related to Stress, and Unsafe Driving Behaviors on Accident Involvement among Professional Drivers in Myanmar

The authors analyzed the impact of demographic variables, driving stresses in the real world, driving behaviors related to stress, and unsafe driving behaviors on accident involvement among professional drivers in Myanmar. The aim of the study is to investigate whether driving stress as well as demographic variables can be linked with driving behaviors and lead to traffic accidents. Structural equation modeling (SEM) is developed to represent the relationship, and Yuan-Bentler residual-based test statistics are used to validate the model structure, as the sample size is small. The results confirmed that driving stress as well as demographic variables affect driving behaviors and lead to traffic accidents.
