In the present study, face-to-face roadside interviews were conducted to investigate the reasons of speeding among Turkish drivers at six different data collection times in two different cities. A structured interview was administered to collect data from a total of 3317 and 1559 drivers in Ankara and Afyon cities, respectively. Results from the two cities consistently revealed that drivers’ self-reported speeding frequency was partially determined by gender and age. Also, perceiving speeding as a cause of crashes was associated with lower frequency of speeding. Finally, thinking that speed tickets are a means for increasing government income and that it would be safe to exceed the speed limit if driving “safely” was positively associated with frequency of speeding. These findings indicate the importance of norms and (biased) perceptions in speeding behavior.

Friction space and the re(dis)covery of urban roads
Baş Bütüner, Funda; Guneri, Gizem Deniz (2022-01-01)
© 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive licence to Springer Nature Limited.For the majority of cities worldwide, car-based mobility has begun to be replaced by alternative mobility modes. This process has augmented the lens for infrastructural topics, and placed infrastructure's latent potentiality at the forefront. Car-dependent infrastructure, however, persists in and conditions urbanism in many others. For such cities, the encounter of roads with the city and human-scale spaces raises critical ground in n...

The discovery of the adobe materials' original compositions belonging to Ulucak Höyük Neolithic settlement has vital importance to better understand and sustain the historical adobe technology developed in Anatolia. A comprehensive research was done on the compositional and raw material properties of adobe materials belonging to th...
Gaze Aversion In Conversational Settings: An Investigation Based On Mock Job Interview
Acartürk, Cengiz; Nawrocki, Piotr; Sniezynski, Bartlomiej; Jarosz, Mateusz; Usal, Kerem Alp (2021-01-01)
© 2021. Journal of Eye Movement Research All Rights Reserved.We report the results of an empirical study on gaze aversion during dyadic human-to-human conversation in an interview setting. To address various methodological challenges in assessing gaze-to-face contact, we followed an approach where the experiment was conducted twice, each time with a different set of interviewees. In one of them the interviewer’s gaze was tracked with an eye tracker, and in the other the interviewee’s gaze was tracked. The g...
Case study of science and social studies teachers co-teaching socioscientific issues-based instruction Fen bilimleri ve sosyal bilgiler öğretmenlerinin sosyobilimsel konular temelli öğretimi: Durum çalışması
Karahan, Engin; Roehrig, Gillian (2017-01-01)
© 2017 Ani Publishing Ltd. All rights reserved.Purpose: Science education literature has indicated that teachers do not always feel comfortable teaching socioscientific issues (SSI) that are infused with several social domains. In order to address this problem in teaching SSI, this study is designed to understand and describe the experiences of a science teacher and a social studies teacher, who collaboratively designed and taught an SSI-based environmental ethics class. Research Methods: The purpose of thi...

© 2019 Author(s).Application of natural fibers in polymer composites has been gaining popularity in several industries pursuing environmentally friendly products. Among the natural fibers with proven potential applications, silk fibers have recently received considerable attention from researchers. Silk fibers provide higher mechanical properties compared to other commonly used natural fibers such as sisal, jute, and hemp. Silk may also exhibit comparable specific mechanical properties to glass fibers. Howe...
