The main purpose of this study is to assess the impact of business and non-business hours on speed and acceleration of car drivers. Driving profiles from 40 drivers were gathered on site using Global Positioning System (GPS) device during both business and non-business hours. Comparison tests conducted found that during business hours, drivers drove significantly slower than non-business hours. The descriptive analysis conducted also shows that drivers applied 30% higher acceleration during non-business hours. Results from this study confirm that business hours have an impact on the variation of speed and acceleration in business zone areas.
