This paper reviews published research relevant to understanding dangerous driving. A systematic search of relevant databases identified 117 papers that considered driving behaviour, but only 12 that specifically discuss factors that influence dangerous driving, motivations for dangerous driving, and/or interventions to improve road safety in dangerous drivers. The general findings of these studies are discussed, although it is concluded that the use of the term 'dangerous driving' by researchers is typically restricted to the driving behaviour of younger and/or novice drivers. As such a larger body of literature relevant to the topic will not be identified by searches that are restricted to the use of specific terminology. Nonetheless, these searches reveal that the best evidence exists for the implementation of Graduated Driver Licensing programs and the identified studies do highlight a number of key contributing factors that should be addressed in any attempt to reduce dangerous driving.
