Take PennDOT's Safety Survey

PennDOT wants your input on highway safety

PennDOT is asking Pennsylvania motorists to help the department monitor its highway safety efforts by sharing their opinions on traffic safety enforcement and driving behaviors through an online survey available through July 27 at www.JustDrivePA.com.

The 22-question survey focuses on highway safety issues, including seat belts, impaired driving, speeding, motorcycles and distracted driving.

People completing the survey may remain anonymous, but are asked to provide their gender, age and ZIP code.

More than 3,500 people responded to last year’s survey.

Last year’s notable results included that:

  • In the previous 60 days, nearly 77 percent of respondents had not driven a motor vehicle within two hours after consuming alcoholic beverages.
  • Also, 93 percent of drivers indicated they used a seat belt all or most of the time.

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

I will comment on this, when they do road construction as always, when they close one lane of schoeneck road from the mobile home park down to the cornfield at the hill, a flag person would be an excellent way to prevent an accident, since either way you have no visibility of cars coming the other way. And the one side was right at the hill so you clearly did not know if a car was coming through. And when cars are proceeding through there workers could stay out of the lane of travel to avoid a tragedy from occuring.
