Abstract

Many things can cause traffic accident, including the driver behaviour. Aggressive driving
behaviour is associated with the risk of traffic accident. Aggressive driving behaviour usually
predicted by external factors, such as other driver’s attitude or gesture that could trigger anger.
However, aggressive driving behaviour could also be shown in a situation where there is no other
driver, for example when someone drive with a high speed in an empty traffic. This means, internal
factor, associated with the ability of the drivers to control themselves, can also contribute to
aggressive driving behaviour. This study aims to investigate the role of self-control in predicting
aggressive driving behaviour in car driver, specifically in Jakarta. The result from linear
aggression analysis shows that self-control significantly predicted aggressive driving behaviour
in car drivers in Jakarta. The coefficient is negative, showing that higher self-control determines
lower aggressive driving behaviour, and lower self-control determines higher aggressive driving
behaviour. Practical implications, limitations of the study, and recommendation for future study
are discussed.
