Abstract: This book is dedicated to the issues of traffic safety in Lithuania. The results and implications of a scientific study conducted in 2015–2017 are presented. The study aimed to investigate the role of psychological attributes of future drivers in the prediction of traffic rule violations and traffic accidents. The study was funded by the grant from the Research Council of Lithuania (grant No. GER-005/2015) and implemented together with state enterprise Regitra and Police Department of Lithuania. Most of the research results presented in this book were included in the unpublished report of the project (stored in the office of the Research Council of Lithuania). In addition to this, complementary original results are also introduced here. Previously the scientific results have been presented in five academic papers, two articles in the mass media, and nine presentations in national and international conferences. High number of traffic accidents and injuries remains a particularly relevant problem of public health and welfare in Europe (European Commission, 2017). It has been determined that approximately 21 percent of people killed on the roads in Europe are from 16 to 24 years old while the proportion of the same age group in the population is only 11.5 percent (Traffic Safety Basic Facts, 2007). Drivers of this young age are 1.7 times more likely to die in a traffic accident in Europe, and in Lithuania this ratio is 1.3 times higher than the European Union average (Traffic Safety Basic Facts, 2016). Also, drivers with up to a year of driving experience are at fault of 11.85 percent of all traffic accidents in Lithuania (Lithuanian Road Administration under the Ministry of Transport and Communications, 2016). Thus, researchers agree that young and inexperienced drivers have the highest probability of causing a traffic accident[...].
