Abstract

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.

Keywords: ASDS-46; internet addiction; driver’s attitude; quality of life
