This work investigates the attitudes of drivers in relation to speed limits in Greece. The analyses are based on data collected through completion of a questionnaire by 207 drivers. Compliance with speed limits on urban and interurban roads is compared and analyzed versus drivers' views on the relation between speeding and probability of road accidents. The main reasons for speed limit violations were determined through a ""self and other"" approach and the profile of speed limit offenders was investigated by use of discriminant analysis. The dominant factors underlying the various reasons for speeding are defined through factor analysis. Finally, the possible effects of the conclusions of this investigation on relevant safety campaigns are discussed. (EN)
