This was a cross-sectional study made on a sample of 236 respondents, aged 18 - 67 years (M = 39.19, SD = 11.25). Data were collected through several online survey campaigns made on social media networks, in Romania. The subjects were told that their participation helps researchers to better understand the predictors of road accidents and received no financial compensation for their effort. In order to be eligible to participate in the study, participants had to own a valid driving license and regularly drive a vehicle. The measures were: Personality, with a 300-item NEO IPIP questionnaire (Goldberg et al., 2006; Iliescu et al., 2015), a measure based on FFM; a TPB questionnaire (Găianu et al., 2020), constructed in complying with the guidelines developed by Ajzen (2006); and Romanian version (Sârbescu, 2013) of the Driver Behavior Questionnaire (DBQ).
