The research reported in this paper was designed to characterize the range of responses of drivers to the experiences of killing or injuring members of the public during the course of their daily work. It was found that 16.3% of the drivers involved in incidents did develop post-traumatic stress disorder & that other diagnoses, e.g. depression & phobic states, were present in 39.5% of drivers when interviewed one month after the incident.
