dc.description.abstract Studies on gender differences have put down the basis for many debates and arguments. This study explores the differences and similarities in linguistic patterns and behavioral acts between female and male drivers in Lebanon. The research follows the mixed method approach of investigation. Three instruments are used to collect data: Structured questionnaires, discourse completion tests and semi-structured interviews. The results show significant differences in behavior between male and female drivers in Lebanon regarding physical aggressive behavior and insignificant differences in empathy and verbal aggressive behavior. The findings stress the need to conduct more research on gender differences in driving behavior. Because gender showed an important impact on aggressive driving, the consequences of drivers’ hazardous behavior in general should be further explored. en_US
