Attitude towards Safe Driving and Internet Addiction among Young Adult in Malaysia
The purpose of this study is to identify the correlation between the driver's attitude and internet addiction level by using Attitude towards Safe Driving Scale (ASDS-46) and Internet Addiction Test (IAT). The result showed that ASDS-46 and IAT have a high level of reliability of Cronbach's Alpha value 0.910 and 0.917 respectively. Domain 1, 2 and 4 (self-compliant, self-confidence and self-concern) show a negative correlation with the value of (P=.000 and -.225), (P=.019 and -.111) & (P=.044 and -.095) respectively. This study concludes that a driver who has a high internet addiction level has a risky behaviour to commit road traffic offences.
