Abstract
The main aim of the article was to investigate the relations between the behaviors of drivers on the road, particularly aggressive behaviors and self-esteem and mood regulation that may play a role of its determinants. The study was conducted on 544 drivers. Psychological variables were measured using Self-Esteem Scale (Łaguna, Lachowicz-Tabaczek, & Dzwonkowska, 2007), Mood Regulation Scales (Wojciszke, 2003), and the adapted Driving Behavior Survey (Clapp et al., 2011). Factor design was obtained identical to that in the original version of the method, with thee factors isolated: anxiety-based performance deficits, exaggerated safety/caution behavior, and anxiety-related hostile/aggressive behavior. DBS can be used for measuring a broad spectrum of driving behaviors. Moreover, a number of correlations was found between behavior on the road, self-esteem, and mood regulation.

Key words: driving behavior, aggressive road, mood regulation, self-esteem
