Abstract

Aberrant driving behaviour is a major concern for road safety. Numerous studies have shown that behaviours such as speeding and drink driving are strongly associated with accident involvement (eg Finch, Kompfner, Lockwood and Maycock, 1994; Parker, Reason, Manstead and Stradling, 1995b; Parker, West, Manstead and Stradling, 1995c; Stradling, 2000; Taylor, Lynam and Baruya, 2000). A large volume of research has therefore been carried out into aberrant driving behaviours to provide a better understanding of why they are carried out and how they can be changed to improve safety.
