Speeding has been widely recognized around the world as a major cause of road accidents and fatalities. However, speeding is also one of the most socially acceptable deviant driving behaviors. Using data collected via a survey, this paper examines the effects of the respondents' personality, perception of enforcement and crash risks, attitudes to speeding and the perceived attitudes of the respondents' significant others on the respondents' self-reported speeding behaviors.
