Instruction: hazard perception has significant role in traffic injuries. The current study included two studies pursueding two main aims: the aim in the first study was examining the relationship between cognitive abilities such as the cognitive styles, behavioral inhibition, cognitive inhibition and traffic hazard perception among drivers. In the second study, the aime was increasing the ability of road hazard perception through the education based on short-traffic slides. Method: In the first study, 129 male drivers (M=38.79 & SD= 8.85) in the city of Mashhad participated. For the second study, 42 students with driving licensee participated with 27 in experimental group and 15 in the control group. Sampling in both studies were voluntraily. Data were collected by traffic hazard perception test, stop-sign, go-nogo and cognitive style. Results: Results of the first study showed a significant and positive relationship between traffic hazard perception with holistic cognitive style, attention and selective attention, and a significant and negative relationship between behavioral inhibition and hazard perception. There was no significant relationship between hazard perception and cognitive inhibition. The findings of the second study indicated a significant difference between the experimental and control groups in the ability of hazard perception. Discussion: Overall, the study confirms the relationship between attention, selective attention and holistic cognitive style with hazard perception; however, about the impact of behavioral and cognitive inhibitions further studies should be conducted. Finally, training can improve traffic hazard percption among drivers.
