Prolific illegal driving behaviour

23 April 2015

The aim of the research from Transport Scotland provides insights into the attitudes and behaviours of a number of drivers who regularly engage in multiple non-compliant and illegal driving behaviours on Scotland’s roads. These qualitative insights sought to complement existing quantitative data around drivers’ attitudes and behaviours collected by Transport Scotland on an on-going basis.

The research seeks to inform future policy development and social marketing campaigns around road safety in Scotland. The findings are available through the Road Safety Knowledge Centre.

The work shows that, rather than there being a ‘hard core’, the number of drivers’ to whom the ‘prolific illegal driver’ label may be applied is perhaps much broader. It spans all ages and both genders, albeit the combinations and reasons for different types of illegal driving vary among different segments of the population.
