The main purose of this study is to analysis the speeding behavior during approaching the U-turn facility road segment based on driving simulation test. In previous studies, it has been shown that speeding behavior is a complex problem that requires a full understanding of drivers’ attitudes and beliefs. Such understanding is needed to improve the speeding behavior of drivers that comes from the effective design and interventions. Therefore, this study will analyse the speeding behavior in approaching the U-turn facility as a key variable in this study which may affect the collision result. Totally 50 participants were recruited in this experiments based on driving simulator. The scenarios and road environment in the driving simulator were based on site location at FT050 Jalan Batu Pahat – Kluang, Johor. Results shows significant increase in speed of up to 40.01% more than the speed limit at the approaching the Uturn facility road segment. The paper concluded that speeding behavior during approaching the U-turn facility road segment based on driving simulation test will trigger significant increasing of speed.
