Abstract This study analyses 2765 cases of driving behaviors in three Australian states – New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria. Data were gathered from in-car coordinated video and audio recording sequences in free-flowing traffic along 2-, 3-, and 4-lane highways with varying speed limits on all days of the week in daylight and fine weather conditions. Explanatory variables included driver age group and gender, passenger characteristics and vehicle age and type. Response variables included driving violations and other driving behaviors, including lane use, speeding, close following (tailgating), driver's hands position, and mobile phone use. Data were analyzed qualitatively and quantitatively. By focusing upon vehicle and driver characteristics, and their impact on driving behaviors, including identified violations, this study explores some implications both for future research and for traffic policy makers.
