Australian Community Attitudes to Road Safety Management
This survey aims to develop a scale of community attitudes towards the road safety measures (or interventions/strategies) contained in the 2011-2020 national road safety strategy (2011-2020 Australian NRSS or national strategy).  It is a follow up to a previous study which analysed the public submissions to the draft copy of the 2011-2020 Australian NRSS. The terms ulterior motives, simplistic, myopic etc reflect the public views expressed in the submissions. The scale herein presented is bipolar (positive and negative). The focus of the survey is the development of the scale rather than the assessment of all countermeasures contained in the 2011-2020 Australian NRSS. This survey uses a small number of the more than 40 interventions/programs included in the 2011-2020 Australian NRSS. The ones used herein represent the first ones described in the strategy document.

This survey is confidential. No individual participant shall be identified to a third party. Its results will only be used as aggregate outcomes. Once analysed, the data shall be destroyed. For additional information about this survey, please, do not hesitate to contact Dr Joao Canoquena at jcanoquena@hotmail.com.

The respondents must be fairly familiar with the 2011-2020 Australian NRSS. A copy of this document can be found at http://roadsafety.gov.au/nrss/files/NRSS_2011_2020.pdf.
