Abstract

We provide a brief comment on the work of Martinussen et al. (2017), who studied the relationships between self-reported driving behavior, registered traffic offences, and registered crash involvement. It is argued that if the number of crashes is small, then the correlation with crashes is also small. Our analysis of the SHRP2 naturalistic driving study shows that the violations score of the Driver Behavior Questionnaire and the Sensation Seeking Scale exhibit small correlations with recorded crashes, and small-to-moderate correlations with recorded near-crashes and measures of driving style.
