Psychoanalytical Aspects of Driving Behaviour: Role and Fantasy on the Road

Oren Kaplan, Ph.D., MBA, Silvia Silberman, M.A., Rinat Alon, M.A. and Yoram Galli, MEI

This article examines the psychological characteristics of the road-driving phenomenon, using Group Relations thinking to examine how psychoanalytic and systemic principles might explain hidden aspects of the phenomenon. The data was collected from a group, and individual interviews and their results were analysed qualitatively. Results suggest that many aspects of road driving can be explained in terms of unconscious processes. Relating to these processes more extensively and openly might increase the effectiveness of safe driving campaigns and enhance the general quality of life experienced by road users.
