PennDOT: Motorists’ survey feedback will help prioritize safety efforts

Effective as of July 11, Pennsylvania motorists can help PennDOT prioritize its highway safety efforts by sharing their opinions on traffic safety enforcement and driving behaviors through an online survey available through July 30 at

The survey consists of 19 questions focused on highway safety, including seat belts, impaired driving, speeding, motorcycles and distracted driving. All answers to the questions are anonymous. In addition, there are general demographic questions such as gender, age and ZIP code.

More than 3,800 people responded to last year’s survey. Among the notable results, the survey showed that nearly 80 percent of motorists reported that within the past 60 days they did not drive within two hours after drinking alcohol. Ninety-one percent of drivers also indicated they used a seat belt all or most of the time.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) requires states to conduct this survey annually.
