Abstract

In this paper, we examined the existence of regional differences in driving speed awareness, mainly between prefectures, using nationwide questionnaire survey data. Our results show that there were no regional differences in driver awareness of the road speed limit while driving on roads in terms of simple trends, namely differences in residential areas such as urban areas and rural areas and differences while driving between prefectures. On the other hand, when looking at the driver’s speed adjustment behavior in speed controlled zones or school zones, it was clear to see that speed adjustment behavior is similar in neighboring prefectures, but there are regional differences when the physical distance increases.
