THE MULTIDIMENSIONAL DRIVING STYLE INVENTORY - SCALE CONSTRUCT AND VALIDATION

This study focuses on the conceptualization of a person's habitual driving style as a specific factor that can explain involvement in a traffic accident and also mediate the effects of more general sociodemographic and personality factors. For the study, 328 participants from various geographical areas in Israel who owned a vehicle and drove on a regular basis volunteered to participate. Driving style was assessed by the multidimensional driving style inventory (MDSI) which was constructed for this study to tap the four hypothesized domains of driving: reckless and careless; anxious; patient and careful; and angry and hostile. The study found significant association between these 8 factors: dissociative, anxious, risky, high velocity, distress reduction, patient, and careful.
