Abstract

This study examines the possible relationship between Type A behaviour pattern (TABP) and traffic accident risk in a cohort of traffic policemen. Data were gathered from 86 police drivers from a small Italian town, using the Bortner questionnaire. Results reveal that police drivers with Type A behaviour had higher traffic accident risk than those with lower scores at the Bortner scale. Adjusted odds ratio was 4.2 (95 per cent CI: 1.17-15.17) after correction for confounding variables in multiple logistic regression.
