Abstract [en]

Few previous studies using the Driver Behaviour Questionnaire examined the link between reported driver behaviour, social influence and cultural factors. The aim of this study is to examine the role of empathy and conformity traits, as well as cultural individualism/collectivism and uncertainty avoidance, for aberrant driving behaviours in a sample of Turkish urban drivers. Very few studies have examined how empathy and conformity traits relate to aberrant driving behaviours. Empathy and conformity traits are crucial factors in social interaction, and may be important for aberrant driving behaviours. Similar to traits, culture may be relatively stable over time and could also relate to aberrant driver behaviours. Trait and cultural factors related to driver behaviour have often been studied in separation, but the present study aims to integrate these perspectives and examine them in parallel. In the present study, we operationalize culture by its consequences on psychological constructs such as attitudes, values and beliefs. This framework has a strong empirical tradition and several attempts to measure culture using this theory have been made in recent decades. The proposed presentation is based on findings from a finalized study.
