The present study examined the relations between the parental bond, resistance to peer influence, and risky driving during the transition from adolescence to emerging adulthoood. Specifically, the mediating role of resistance to peer pressure in the relationship between parental bond and risky driving was examined. The sample comprised 667 subjects (300 males and 367 females), aged from 15 to 25 years, divided into two groups: one of adolescents and one of young adults. Mediation models were used to assess the direct and indirect effects of the parental bond on risky driving among adolescents and young adults through assessment of their ability to resist peer influence. These models were examined separately for adolescents and young adults. Findings for adolescents showed that a supportive parental bond was directly and indirectly associated with risky driving, as measured by resistance to peer influence. On the contrary, results for young adults indicated that the parental bond was only directly associated with risky driving. Age differences are discussed on the basis of the different cultural and parental socialisation processes that operate for adolescents and young adults.
Keywords: Parental bond, peer influence, risky driving, age differences.
