More information is included on the research conducted by TomTom International with countries from all over the globe. TomTom commissions these results on the day same day of the launch of the Break Free campaign which aims to help people break free from traffic.
The study revealed that women suffered an 8.7% increase in stress from driving in traffic, whilst men suffered a staggering increase of 60%. More worryingly, in the same tests 67% of women and 50% of men reported not feeling stressed 20 minutes after driving in traffic, when physiologically they were. The research goes on to suggest that the effects of long-term exposure to stress chemicals include suppressed immune function, raised blood pressure and elevated blood sugar levels.
