The aim of this paper was to see whether there is an association between drivers' self-concept, gender, and proclivity for dangerous driving. Participants' self-concept was measured using the brief Hebrew version of the Tennessee Self-Concept Scale (TSCS; Fitts, 1965). Tendency to commit traffic violations and to engage in dangerous driving was assessed using the Dangerous Driving Questionnaire (DDQ; Berger, 1995). The regression analysis showed that out of all TSCS scales only moral self-concept correlated significantly with general dangerous driving. In addition, ANOVA revealed that male drivers and drivers with low self-concept report more dangerous driving than do females and drivers with high self-concept, correspondingly. Results give evidence in favor of a hypothesis that low self-concept is connected to dangerous driving.
