This survey-based paper aims at investigating driver attitude toward road safety issues at inter-urban roads. This research is placed within the overall framework of analyzing driver behavior toward road accidents at the interurban network of Greece. A series of important driver be-havior characteristics are identified with the use of parametric statistical analysis methods (dis-criminant, cluster and factor analysis). The findings of this analysis suggest that young male drivers and high vehicle occupancy are factors associated with speed excess, whereas drivers with lower yearly mileage are more inclined to drinking and driving, independently of their age. Finally, despite the almost unanimous belief that enforcement could be an important contributor to road safety improvement, enforcement at the interurban road network is considered far from efficient.
