Driving psychology involves the responsibility of social norming, enforcement psychological strategies, methods of keeping the drivers safe from their tendencies of speeding, all this based on acomplete awareness of the driver for the consequences of his behavior.We made this experiment on a very busy road from Romania in order to measure the speed when a stimulus associated with enforcement is applied and the situation in which the driver saw no consequences of his speeding behavior.The study was conducted on national road 21, between Slobozia and Braila. The results shown a difference of 44 km/h between the two experimental situations.
