Abstract: This paper reports an investigation of self-report driver stress and aberrant driver behaviour in a sample of 300 male bus and truck drivers in Manipur. The relationship between Driver Stress Inventory (DSI)developed by Matthews, Desmond, Joyner, Carcary and Gilliland (1997)and Driver Behaviour Survey (DBS) developed byClapp et al., (2011)were examined. The existing factor structure of both the DSI and DBS generally was supported.However, a fourth factor for the DBS, which provides increased emphasis on hostile gesture, was identified.The logistic regressions result revealed that the predictors (age, experience, mileage and the dimensions of DSI) could significantly predict penalties but cannot predict accidents.High levels of driver stress were consistently found to be associated with increased self-reported driving urgency/aggression and driving fear.
