A SURVEY OF DRIVER AND MOTORCYCLIST ATTITUDES TOWARD HIGHWAY SAFETY ISSUES. VOLUME I--SURVEY FINDINGS. VOLUME II--DATA TABLES AND QUESTIONNAIRE
The purposes of this survey are primarily centered on obtaining driver opinions and evaluations of current and proposed traffic laws of this "discretionary" nature including: 1) Current laws prohibiting the operation of motorcycles without driver and passengers wearing motorcycle helmets (mandatory helmet laws); 2) Current laws setting the maximum speed limit on expressways and highways at 55 m.p.h.; and 3) Potential laws concerning "mandatory" safety belt or safety seat use for children, adolescent, and adult passengers and drivers. This survey was also used to obtain driver opinions about other proposed programs that might be instituted in Michigan including: 1) "Motorcyclist" education courses similar to the drivers education courses taught in Michigan public and driver's training schools; and 2) Mandatory vehicle inspection programs.
