Re-evaluating speeding behaviour among ACT drivers: An action theory approach

This project applied a new criminological theory to the field of road safety in order to address the ongoing challenge of speeding drivers. Specifically, this examined the implementation of a survey with approximately 600 drivers currently residing in the ACT, in order to achieve the following objectives:

  • promote and stimulate further research to combat speeding.
  • equip policy makers and researchers with a greater understanding of the causal mechanisms underlying speeding behaviour.
  • more accurately identify: who is more likely to speed; why they are more likely to speed; and under what circumstances drivers are more (or less) likely to speed.
