The aim of the present study was to examine if there are differences in drivers' propensity to have different types of intelligent speed adaptation installed in their cars depending on the sample of drivers (i e. Swedish or Turkish), their aberrant driving behaviours (i e. violations and errors), and/or the technical solution used (i.e speed limit information, advisory, supportive and intervening systems). A sample of 224 Swedish and 316 Turkish drivers completed a questionnaire Including questions based on the driver behaviour questionnaire (DBQ) as well as questions about the drivers' propensity to have different types of intelligent speed adaptation installed in their cars The results showed that the Swedish sample of drivers was less positive than the Turkish sample of drivers towards having the advisory, supportive and intervening systems installed Furthermore, drivers who frequently commit violations were less positive towards having any of these systems installed than were drivers who commit violations less frequently, while drivers who frequently make errors were more positive towards having the systems Installed than were drivers who make errors less frequently Both the Swedish and the Turkish sample of drivers were most positive towards having the speed limit information system installed, followed by the advisory system on second place, the supportive system on third place and lastly the intervening system on fourth place (C) 2010 Elsevier Ltd All rights reserved.

Professional and non-professional drivers' stress reactions and risky driving
Öz, Bahar; Özkan, Türker (2010-01-01)
The aim of the present study was to investigate stress reactions, speeding, number of penalties and accident involvement among different driver groups (taxi drivers, minibus drivers, heavy vehicle drivers, and non-professional drivers). A total number of 234 male drivers participated in the study. The participants were asked to complete the Driver Stress Inventory (DSI) together with a demographic information form. Five dimensions of the DSI were measured; aggression, dislike of driving, hazard monitoring, ...
A new addition to DBQ: Positive Driver Behaviours Scale
Özkan, Türker (Elsevier BV, 2005-7)
The aims of the present study were to develop an instrument for measuring "positive" driver behaviours and to investigate the relationship between these behaviours, DBQ scales (violations and errors), aggression, traffic offences, and accidents. Participants were 306 Turkish drivers (194 male and 112 female) who completed a questionnaire including the newly developed Positive Driver Behaviour Scale, Driver Behaviour Questionnaire (DBQ), Driver Aggression Indicators Scale (DAIS), and items related to drivers...
Driving Decisions of Young and Old Drivers - Driving Self-Regulation
Azık, Derya; Özkan, Türker (2019-07-05)
The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between driving self-regulation (i.e., strategical, tactical, and life-goal) and aberrant driver behaviors (i.e., violations, errors, and lapses). 120 old and 138 young, a total of 258 active drivers participated and filled Revised version of Advanced Decisions and Patterns of Travel Scale (Molnar, et al, 2013) and Driver Behavior Questionnaire (DBQ) (Reason et al., 1990; Lajunen, & Özkan, 2004). The results showed that tactical self-regulation was ne...
Cross-cultural differences in driving behaviours: A comparison of six countries
Özkan, Türker; Chliaoutakis, Joannes El.; PARKER, Dianne; SUMMALA, Heikki (2006-05-01)
The first aim of the present study was to investigate the applicability of the three-factor structure (aggressive violations, ordinary violations, and errors) of the Manchester Driver Behaviour Questionnaire (DBQ) and then to compare these driving behaviours across the six countries (Finland, Great Britain, Greece, Iran, The Netherlands, and Turkey). The third aim of the present study was to evaluate the role of driving styles in the relationship between traffic cultures (countries) and the number of traffi...
