Our personality plays a major role in many everyday situations, including road traffic. Knowing traffic rules and being able to steer a vehicle are just as important as adhering to traffic rules and driving with foresight. While performance tests help to answer the question of fitness to drive, traffic-related personality tests can provide information on how responsible and controlled a person will be in traffic.
Why traffic-related personality is an important criterion for road safety?
Our personality affects our actions. While driving, our traffic-related personality is therefore of particular interest. For this purpose, for example, we consider whether road users behave according to the standards, deviate from them or even show aggressive behaviour. But the degree of responsibility, self-control and psychological stability are also important.
Many studies have shown the relevance of these dimensions for safe behavior in road traffic: both on the basis of the number of accidents, but also on the basis of low-threshold safety risks, such as driving above the speed limit. This willingness to drive too fast, as well as dangerous overtaking maneuvers, is part of the dimension of risk willingness, which can be measured as well as "risk avoidance".
