Stopped for speeding: What should you say to police to reduce ticket costs? -poster

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Most drivers are occasionally stopped for exceeding the speed limit by police who have the discretion to alter the final penalty. When does a speeder receive a full ticket, a “reduced ticket,” or only a warning? In other everyday contexts, apologies foster forgiveness. We investigated whether extra-legal factors (e.g., apologies and other verbal responses) in addition to legal factors (e.g., speed over the limit), influence ticket costs for speeding. Field studies were conducted in the USA and in Canada. Effects of speeders’ responses on ticket costs are discussed from both legal and social psychological standpoints.
