THE SYMPTOMS REPORTED BY LONG DISTANCE TRAVELLERS

The incidence of 14 symptoms experienced following car and train travel over a two year period was investigated in a sample of 165 white collar workers in the West Midlands. Two main conclusions were drawn from this survey: first that the incidence of the symptoms increased with the frequency of making long distance journeys by train but not by car; secondly, that the reporting of symptoms following long distance journeys by car were correlated with neuroticism whereas no similar correlations were found for train journeys.
