The purpose of this study was to investigate the contribution of each abnormal personality dimension to predicting driving behavior by mediating emotional regulation.

To collect data, Manchester Driving Behavior Questionnaire, emotional regulation and abnormal personality dimensions were used. Data were analyzed using structural equation modeling method using Lisrel 8.85 and SPSS.20 software.
Findings: The evaluation of structural model using structural equation modeling method showed that all fitness indexes of this hypothesized model were in proper fitting range. The abnormal dimensions of personality as an exogenous variable were effective with coefficients of -0.45 (t=-5.81) and 0.56 (t=8.03), respectively. The emotional regulation also influenced driving behavior with a coefficient of -0.15 (t=-2.12).
