Abstract

The purpose of part II is to explain the correlation between driver's attitude and their quality of life. Based on the previous study, Attitude towards Safe Driving Scale (ASDS-46) was used jointly with and WHOQOL-BREF to examine the relationship. The result showed that ASDS-46 and WHOQOL-BREF have a high level of reliability with Cronbach's Alpha value .887 and .853 respectively. Domain 2 and 3 (psychological & social relationship) shows a positive correlation with the value of (P=.003 and .017). This study concludes that the positive correlation between driver's attitude and the psychological domain is an alarming issue which needs further investigation.

Keywords:ASDS-46; WHOQOL-BREF; driver’s attitude; young adult
