I am currently serving on a Speed Mgmt Committee (on behalf of the NHACOP) with stakeholders from DOT, NH Highway Safety, DMV and others, trying to identify and plan actions to address issues of speed (a primary cause of serious personal injury and death crashes). To that end, we have created a survey for all citizen DRIVERS to take in order to collect data surrounding perspectives and attitudes about Speed. If you would be so kind as to forward the survey description (in black below) and link below to community members via e-mail groups, personal and professional FB pages, Town or Police Department web sites … or any way to get this out to the motoring public. We would like to get responses by April 8th so that we can crunch the data and correlate any possible changes needed. Thank you in advance for your assistance.
The New Hampshire Departments of Safety and Transportation, along with the New Hampshire Chiefs of Police Association have established a collaborative work group to address the issue of excessive highway speeds and the culture of speeding on New Hampshire streets and highways. As part of that effort, we have created a brief survey meant to gather data related to drivers’ understanding of and attitude toward speed, speed enforcement, and other speed related issues. The survey data will be used to develop strategies for engineering, enforcement, and education efforts to reduce the number of speed related crashes, especially those that result in injury or even death. The survey should take just a few minutes and can be found at the link below:
