Abstract

We examine whether rule compliance predicts prosocial behavior. We proxy rule compliance by compliance with parking regulations and prosocial behavior via response rates to surveys. We find that surveys attached to legally parked cars are returned more often. (C) 2019 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
