LONG-TERM PREDICTABILITY OF DRIVER BEHAVIOR

Multiple regression was used to predict current accidents and violations for 2283 subjects from Iowa and California who had completed the Driver Attitude Survey (Schuster and Guilford, 1964) 10-18 years previously and had driver records recorded at that time. It was found that, on the whole, current violations could be successfully predicted with these data, while current accidents could not be. The results lead to the conclusion that violation behavior is more stable over time than had previously been acknowledged, previous research having looked at driver behavior in consecutive time periods only.
