Samenvatting The authors examined the effects of trait driving anger, aggressive stimuli, and anonymity on aggressive driving behaviour in a driving simulation task. High and low driving anger participants were randomly assigned to one of four conditions: (a) anonymous versus identifiable driver; and (b) exposure to aggressive stimuli versus nonaggressive stimuli. Participants drove more aggressively when they were anonymous (d = .28) and exposed to aggressive stimuli (d = .05). Males drove more aggressively than did females (d = .06). No main or interaction effects were found for trait driving anger. Results suggest that situational factors affecting other forms of aggression are also important in aggressive driving. (A)
