ALMEIDA, Nemésio Dario Vieira de; LIMA, Ana Karina B. de; ALBUQUERQUE, Consuelo M.  e  ANTUNES, Luciana. Relations of gender and perceptions of drivers in the ambit of the traffic system. Psicol. cienc. prof. [online]. 2005, vol.25, n.2, pp. 172-185. ISSN 1414-9893.

This article has the aim of studing the relations of gender in the ambit of the traffic system, searching as the woman driver and the man driver perceive and understand themselves and the other sex as well as his/her own to investigate the existing social representations. 84 drivers, from 18 to 60 years old, participated in the research, 42 female sex and 42 male. The collection of the data was carried through contacts with men and women in the university, workstations and the domicile in the city of Recife by means of an interview with two questions and a questionnaire with four open questions, that later congregated and organized the data. Initially, all the answers were raised and registered; each one constituted a topic of analysis. To follow, a new reading of the material was carried through. It was searched what was essential in each reply. It was verified the nature of the emergent categories and its frequency in each subject. It should be pointed out that each reply had more than a category, therefore the number of answers does not correspond to the number of citizens. We concluded that: (a) the cultural papers had influenced the perception's drivers about themselves and the person of the other sex; (b) difference of gender was also observed in the way people face the relations in the traffic.
