Abstract The present study examined the relationships between narcissism, self-esteem, driving anger, and driving aggression in an Internet survey of 334 Polish drivers using the Polish versions of the Driving Anger Scale (DAS), the Driving Vengeance Questionnaire (DVQ), Rosenberg’s Self-Esteem Scale, the Narcissistic Personality Inventory (NPI), and the Driving Behavior Survey (DBS). High levels of narcissism and low self-esteem predicted driving aggression. Implications for improving road safety are discussed. We compare the findings with the most recent results from North America.
