TRL – stress management study

Stress is a common occurrence among many people, and may stem from one or various areas of life. However, research shows that stress of different sources can have a detrimental effect on road safety and can result in increased risk to motorists.

TRL is currently recruiting for a study relating to stress while on the road. They are looking for motorcyclists/ moped riders who have been experiencing high levels of stress in the previous six months. In particular, we are interested in people who feel their riding style has been affected by feelings of stress and stress-related anxiety or worry.

Participants who are selected to take part in the research will be required to travel to TRL and will be paid a small standard amount to go toward time and expenses involved in participating in the research.
