Abstract:Today, still one of the most threatening risks for humans is driving a car. Car accidents are one of the most common causes of death or injury, likewise more and more people worldwide own and use a car. Especially young, novice drivers of the age of 18 to 25 are prone to engage in risky driving behavior and are the largest at-risk group when it comes to being responsible for car accidents. Therefore, it is necessary to take a closer look at all the risk factors and underlying aspects in order to find solutions to make driving safer for future generations. This specific research project focused on the influence of personality and self-efficacy on the driving behavior of young drivers, in order to show that not only ability and experience contribute to a person’s driving style.
