MOTIVATIONAL ASPECTS OF TRAFFIC PSYCHOLOGY

MOTIVORIENTIERTE ASPEKTE DER VERKEHRSPSYCHOLOGIE

The starting point is the question of the significance of the motivations for driving, driving behaviour, and driving safety. The authors point out, in particular, that the knowledge of the strength of individual motivations does not permit predictions to be made especially of driving behaviour if their functional significance with respect to the personality as a whole is not taken into consideration. Although the literature evaluated in this study does not imply any conclusions with respect to directly applicable measures for the improvement of traffic safety, the authors point out approaches which should be paid attention to in future research preparation and planning in the fields of traffic education as well as traffic information and publicity. /Author/
