Samenvatting A total of 192 drivers (122 females and 70 males) completed an anonymous questionnaire battery. The battery consisted of a self report driver aggression questionnaire, which measures the likelihood of engaging in mild driver aggression, a self report violent driving questionnaire, which assesses the frequency of past acts of driver violence, and a driving vengeance questionnaire, which appraises a vengeful driving attitude. Separate hierarchical entry stepwise regressions were conducted for mild aggression and violence. As expected, male and female drivers reported similar levels of mild driver aggression, supporting the notion that context is important in arousing female aggression. Suggestions for equivalence of mild aggression in this setting are offered. In contrast, driver violence was more frequent among male drivers, predominantly those with highly vengeful driving attitude, which highlights the relevance of both behavioral form and personal factors within gender linked aggression research.
