Opis: The purpose of this paper is to present basic elements of the research directed at identifying and determining the personality traits of professional drivers that affect safe, secure and enjoyable ride on the public roads. A quantitative method has been used here, whereas data were acquired from a questionnaire based on a sample of 59 professional drivers. Determining personality traits of professional drivers that are in correlation with safe and pleasant ride on the roads has been enabled by applying the five factor model of personality ('Big Five') and the Personality Inventory NEO-PI. From these results it was concluded that safe operation of the vehicle in traffic involves the successful 'conduct' of oneself, that recognizes the importance of certain personality traits of professional drivers for traffic safety and the need for appropriate professional selection in case of employment of professional drivers. Research results suggest that extraversion is significant to separate drivers by the total number of accidents - more open and sociable drivers (extraverted) are significantly less involved in accidents than introvert ones. Research results have also confirmed that satisfaction is significant trait for separating drivers by the total number of drivers with a fault in such a way that the less pleased and more aggressive drivers have considerably more accidents. The research opens the way for new research tasks that should help in creating a specific structure of curricula that can be used in a variety of transportation companies and enterprises to improve general and public safety.
