The Multidimensional Driving Style Inventory (MDSI; Taubman - Ben-Ari et al., 2004) is a well-known and useful instrument that allows us to identify not only "maladaptive" Driving Styles (DS) in order to modify them, but also "adaptive" DS to encourage safe driving. The aim of this study was to adapt the MDSI to the Spanish spoken in Spain and to t...
Chapter
The concept of validity is one of the most influential concepts in psychometrics and survey research because considerations about its scope and nature influence every step in the survey life cycle, from survey and questionnaire design to implementation as well as the use and reporting of results. Curiously, quite independent lines of thought and pr...

Distraction constitute one of the 'five fatal' behaviours that contribute to road trauma, and some people may be more susceptible to it than others. It is also known that a greater ability to predict danger is related to a lower probability of suffering accidents. It could be hypothesised that drivers with a higher tendency to distraction are worse...
