MICHIGAN OMNIBUS STATE TRAFFIC SAFETY SURVEY: FALL 1990. FINAL REPORT, OCTOBER 1, 1990 - SEPTEMBER 30,1991

This survey is part of a multi-year study providing periodic information on highway safety attitudes, perceptions, and reported behaviors of adult residents throughout the State of Michigan. The latest survey wave was conducted in the fall of 1990 (N=753). The telephone survey instrument contained 56 questions on six broad highway safety topics including: (1) vehicles, police, and roads; (2) travel speeds; (3) driver licensing and education; (4) heavy trucks; (5) alcohol consumption and alcohol-impaired driving; and (6) occupant protection. A dual-frame probability sample was used to maximize response rates. Majority support was found for 16 major traffic safety policies, and majority support was not found for nine other policies. Opinions were evenly divided on four issues. Stratification of responses by survey year, age, gender, and voting status revealed significant differences. Results are of interest to those considering alternative policies and programs to reduce injuries, and to those monitoring injury relevant behaviors such as alcohol consumption, safety belt use, and speeding.
