It was found that traffic congestion (63%) and parking (56%) top of the list of factors that cause high anxiety levels in Indian drivers. At least six out of every ten Indian drivers feel stressed due to these factors. These results have come to light when India has recorded highest ever road deaths at 16 people per hour in the year 2014.
"All these years we have been blaming drivers and little has been done to find out what is the extent of road condition and driving atmosphere that are responsible for crashes as well," said K. K. Kapila, Chief of International Road Federation.
The other factors for stress like fear of accident and traffic fines rated low. However, one of the key factors like honking on the road was not taken into consideration. Another fact that came out through this study was that the drivers feel relaxed by singing or listening to music. Almost 47% drivers sing most of the times while driving.
