The specific objective of the research is to compare the perception of risk with personal commitment and without obligation. It seeks to contrast the "declarative discourse" of "doing experiential". By administering an opinion poll arises collating, in line with Gerald Wilde's theory about risk homeostasis, the differences between perceived risk and risk willing to accept.

Global analysis of the data is inferred that exposure to risk is higher in those issues that drivers have the "illusion" of having the control. In all these cases they are projected as drivers, and as such are believed able to control and resolve situations. other variables such as age, sex and driving experience were analyzed.

Keywords: Risk, Driving, Perception, Acceptance, Road safety, Accident, Traffic, Transit.
