Abstract: The present study examined the relationship between drivers' age and gender, vehicle status and traffic density and aggressive driving behavior. We analyze the results of observations conducted at four intersections during a total of 24 hours. We observed three types of behavior: short horn honking, long horn honking, inappropriate and sudden lane changes and cutting in front of other drivers. Gender differences in occurrence of observed types of aggressive behavior were not noticed. Younger drivers appeared to have a greater tendency toward aggressive driving behavior than older ones. Vehicle status is associated with frequency of observed aggressive acts. An analysis of the relation between the number of vehicles on the road and aggressive driver behavior did not show any evident increase in aggressive behavior with increased traffic congestion.

Keywords: aggression, driver behavior, horn honking, gender differences, status of vehicle
