Abstract
Objective: The aim of the current study to evaluate the effectiveness of “Improvement of Driver-Behavior Program” on Self-Control of individuals whose driving licenses have been seized for two years due to drinking and driving.
Methods: Study sample consisted of 60 volunteers whose driving licenses have been seized for two years due to getting stopped for drunk driving for the second time and who were participated in improvement of driver-behavior program. Self-Control Scale was administered to the group before, at the 6’th week and after the 12-week program.
Results: When we examined the Self-Control Scale (SCL) scores; means were 51±17.69. 6 at the first assessment, 54.23±15.61 at the 6’th week, and 48.86±17.76 at the 12’th of the program. Therefore, the alteration in Self-Control Scale Scores during the program was statistically not significant ( F=1,434; p=0.236).Further pair-wise comparison revealed that only the difference between the SCL scores at 6’th and 12’th weeks was statistically significant (p:0,005).Besides, ANCOVA analysis revealed that the age had significant effect on the difference between the SCL scores at the 6’th and 12’th weeks (F=3,858; p:0.027).
Conclusion: We conclude that the quality of “Driver-Behavior Improvement Program” should be enhanced by extending the duration of the education and addressing the age factor in improving self-control features of the relevant individuals.

Key words: Traffic, drinking and driving, self-control



Alkollü Araç Kullanımı Nedeniyle Sürücü Belgelerine El Konulan Bireylere Uygulanan “Sürücü Davranışlarını Geliştirme Eğitimi” nin Bireylerin Özdenetimlerine Etkisi.

Ozet
Amaç: Bu çalışmayla; alkollü araç kullanımı nedeniyle sürücü belgelerine 2 yıl sınırlılık getirilen bireylere verilen sürücü davranışlarını geliştirme eğitiminin,bireylerin özdenetimi üzerindeki etkisinin değerlendirilmesi amaçlanmıştır.
Yöntem: Çalışmaya, ikinci kez alkollü araç kullanımı nedeni ile sürücü belgelerine sınırlılık getirilmiş, sürücü davranışlarını geliştirme eğitimi alan, çalışmaya katılmaya gönüllü60 kişidâhil edilmiştir.
Bulgular: Özdenetim ölçek puanlarıdeğerlendirildiğinde; 60 kişinin ilk haftaya ait ölçek puan ortalamasının:51±17.69, 6. hafta ait 54.23±15.61, 12. hafta 48.86±17.76 olduğu bulunmuştur. Özdenetime ilişkin alınan ölçümler karşılaştırıldığında test puanları arasında istatistiksel açıdan anlamlı bir değişim olmadığı görülmüştür ( F=1,434; p=0.236). Özdenetime ilişkin ölçümlerin ikili karşılaştırmalarında ise sadece 6. haftadan 12. haftaya azalan ortalamanın istatistiksel olarak anlamlı olduğu görülmüştür (p:0,005). Yapılan ANCOVA analizi sonucunda ise 6. haftadan 12. haftaya doğruözdenetimpuan ortalamalarındaki azalmada yaşın istatistiksel açıdan anlamlı etkisi bulunmuştur (F=3,858; p:0.027).
Sonuç: Alkollü araç kullanımı nedeni ile ehliyetlerine sınırlılık getirilen bireyler için verilen eğitimin kalitesinin artırılması, eğitimin daha geniş zamanlara yayılmasının sağlanması ve eğitimin özdenetim üzerindeki etkisinde yaşın bir faktör olarak değerlendirilmesininönemli olabileceği düşünülmektedir.
