Abstract

The statistic of bus accidents in Malaysia has been increasing year by year. Previous research conducted found that fatigue has been one of the factors which influences driving behaviors. The purpose of this research is to find out the fatigue level by the bus drivers of RapidKL Depoh Cheras Selatan, the factors which influence the drivers fatigue level, and fatigue level that effect driving behavior. This study was carried out to 161 drivers in the municipal area of Klang Valley through a survey of questionnaire which comprises of demographic section, Fatigue Severity Scale (FSS), Epworth Sleepiness Scale (ESS) and the assessment of the drivers’ health. The findings show the drivers could be categorized as fatigue (FSS average score ≥ 4), in detail, 76% of the drivers were fatigue while 24% were not fatigue. Further analysis shows there were four classifications of fatigue among the drivers of RapidKL which were not fatigue (14%), slightly fatigue (29%), more fatigue (35%) and extremely fatigue (22%). Moreover, the level of sleepiness (ESS) and the level of smoking were significant factors on the level of drivers’ fatigue with a very weak correlation value. In contrast, the drivers’ health condition did not affect the drivers’ fatigue (r ˂ 0.1), nevertheless, drivers were always experiencing pain in the neck (reported by 81% of drivers). Fatigue was also found to affecting the driving behavior which the slightly fatigue group of drivers were more active (reaction time more faster), 1.8% times faster than the more fatigue group and 6.5% than the extremely fatigue group for accelerating action. For braking action, there were 9.7% faster than the more fatigue group and 17.7% than the extremely fatigue group. This shows the higher the level of fatigue, drivers reaction time become slower in accererating and bracking.
