The 1995 Omnibus State Traffic Safety Survey is part of a multiyear study providing periodic information on traffic safety attitudes, perceptions, and reported behaviors of adult residents throughout the state of Michigan. The latest survey wave was conducted in June 1995 (N=810). The telephone survey instrument contained 58 questions on six broad traffic safety topics including travel speeds and roads, police patrols, driver licensing, alcohol consumption and impaired driving, designated drivers and other alternatives for impaired drivers, and driving with suspended licenses. Majority support was found for policies restricting driving privileges of drivers under age 18, policies concerned with the licensing of older drivers, and policies aimed at keeping persons with suspended driver's licenses off the road. Stratification by gender, age, survey year, and other selected variables revealed significant differences. Results are of interest to those considering alternative policies to reduce injuries, and to those monitoring injury-relevant behavior such as alcohol consumption, safety belt use, and speeding.
