Transportation plays an essential role in our everyday lives. Transportation planners often looking for systems that are efficient, reliable, and safe. One of the most significant factors in road accidents and public safety is the behavior of drivers. The Driver Behavior Questionnaire (DBQ) has not been used in Peshawar to find driver behavior. The dream of a secure and effective transportation network seems to exacerbate these conditions. The complete DBQ method is essential to find the effectiveness of the DBQ. The Driver Behavior Questionnaire (DBQ) was split into four separate sections. There were three major categories of driver behavior: mistakes, slips and lapses, violations, and unintentional violations. The respondents had to rate themselves on a scale of 1 to 3, how good they think they are, how healthy they think they are. The report concludes with a list of recommendations on how drivers can improve their behavior. Survey was performed at colleges and public buildings in parking lots. Drivers were questioned directly in the parking lot. 250 questionnaires were filled out in total. Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) was mainly used for the analysis of the data. Almost 64% of people do not have a driving license. 62% consider the process of getting a license difficult while 29% consider it of no use, and they believe they do not need it. Drivers with no driving license do more speeding than those who have a license. Most of the respondents were of the opinion to have strict enforcement of traffic rules, mandatory training before issuing a driving license.
