When disobedience becomes habit: Effects of travel behaviours of motorcyclist on repetitive traffic violations in three Indonesian cities
2012 (English)Conference paper, Abstract (Refereed)
Recent studies suggest that traffic violations have certain relationships with personal travel behaviours and increase the risk of accidents as well. While explorations of traffic violations and travel behaviours were extensively reported from developed countries’ experience, little is understood about the implications of travel behaviours to traffic violations in the developing world’s setting where motorcycle’s users are growing very rapidly and well known as aberrant road users. This study has an aim to explore the effects of travel behaviour on traffic violations utilising datasets from three metropolitan cities in Indonesia (Bandung, Yogyakarta and Surabaya). Based on questionnaire surveys among Indonesian motorcyclists with sample size of a thousand in each city, an analysis was completed using structural equation modelling methodology. This study reports that the way people travel for their everyday mobility with motorcycle has positive and significant influence on the construct of repetitive traffic violations. Analysis shows that motorcyclists who commute for longer trips are more frequent to violence against over speeding. On the other hand, repetitive helmet use’s violations are statistically influenced by shorter trip patterns. Study also classified several actions of disobedience that are very frequent as a habit of motorcyclist.
