← Back to: List of phobias
Trochophobia (from Latin trocho meaning "truck") is the fear of being on a truck or bus. The phobia is usually triggered after knowing that truck or bus is more vulnerable to flipping over on its side, and by seeing on the news or in person a truck or bus is knocked over with injuries and sometimes even deaths in its wake. Sufferers would not take a bus to and fro school, instead they rely on parents or guardian to drive them to and fro school via car. When they go on a field trip, sufferer would insist a teacher to drive there.
