The study aims to evaluate how the factors of motivation and attitudes about traffic safety are related to risky driving evaluated by young drivers both subjectively and objectively. Risky driving was evaluated in three ways: self-knowledge, driving in a simulation environment, and recalled violations of road traffic regulations as well as accidents caused. 226 respondents aged 18–29 answered the questions from the self-knowledge questionnaire, 40 of them participated in the experiment of driving in a simulation environment. The respondents’ attitudes towards risky driving as well as external and internal risky driving motives were analysed as factors of motivation and attitudes about traffic safety. Young male drivers were established to be more risky than female drivers. A positive attitude about risky driving is related to a more risky driving of subjectively evaluated young drivers. The internal motives to drive in a risky way are mostly related to the risky driving of young male and female drivers (evaluated both subjectively and objectively).
