The purpose of this study is to examine what factors lead to driving compensation behavior among elderly drivers, particularly focusing on the effect of self-reported driving performance, and to investigate the relationship between driving compensation behavior and traffic accidents or violations. After analyzing 237 elderly drivers, the results showed that whereas self-reported driving performances influenced driving compensation behaviors, the relationship between self-reported driving performances and driving compensation behaviors contradicted because of the differences in driving behaviors. Furthermore, the results indicated that the driving compensation behaviors were effective in preventing traffic accidents and violations.
