The research revealed that men's stress levels soared seven times higher than women's when they are struck in a traffic jam. Women stayed relatively calm with stress levels rising by 8.7% where as men's levels rocketed by 60%!  Men are also more likely to feel angry and frustrated about wasting time in gridlock.  Apparently, us women relieve the pressure by singing along to the radio!
 
A concern raised as a result of the findings of the research is that such responses and high stress levels can lead to dangerous decisions being made on the road leading to accident and injuries.  With almost half of adults travelling to work by car every day, those whose stress levels soar when they get struck in traffic could be setting themselves up for stress related health problems.
 
So, do as I do every day when I am inevitably stuck in traffic, take a deep breath, turn the radio up and belt out a tune!!
