In the last decade, motorcycle use is booming and traffic law violations among motorcyclist are becoming more common in Southeast Asian countries. This study aims to explore the effects of attitudes, habits, preferences, and travel patterns of motorcyclists to their repetitive traffic violation behaviours using data from three major cities in Indonesia: Bandung, Yogyakarta, and Surabaya. The theory of planned behaviour and structural equation modelling are employed to detangle these relationships. The study results show that individual beliefs and attitudes, social norms, and perceived behaviour control significantly influence repetitive violation behaviours with social norm as the strongest influencing factor. Males, youngsters, or educated people are found to be more likely to violate traffic regulation frequently. In designing behavioural change policy, it is important to note that individual driving style and traffic law obedience are most closely related with the individual beliefs and attitudes, whilst not respecting other drivers on the streets and speeding in residential areas are the factors that are most influencing social norm. Road geometry, traffic volume, and the number of road lanes are factors that influence individual perceived behavioural control. Pushing the motorcycle to a (very) narrow gap, blocking other vehicles, and speeding are the top three most frequent violations which construct repetitive violation behaviours in Indonesia.
