Abstract

Segregating motorcyclists is one of the practices that used to reduce motorcycle collisions with other road users. Malaysia has three common types of motorcycle lanes; the exclusive motorcycle lane, the inclusive motorcycle lane and the paved shoulder. This study examined the impacts of these types of motorcycle lanes on motorcyclist psychology and speeding behaviors by using questionnaire survey that carried out in Malaysia. The psychological variables investigated in this study are based on psychological theories that related with risky behavior which are attitude, perceived behavior control, perception of danger, fear of being caught, moral obligation and perception on others’ speeding behavior. Structural equation modeling (SEM) analysis revealed that exclusive motorcycle lane give direct impact on motorcyclists’ speeding behavior compare to other type of lanes. Psychological factors such as perception of others’ behavior, attitude and perceived behavior control show the significant influence toward motorcyclists’ speeding behavior in the motorcycle lanes.
