This survey acknowledges that the measurement of the effectiveness of a road safety strategy should be, as far as possible, objective. This means having scientific methods to do so. However, as Sir Robert Peel, the Father of modern Policing, once said, the work of the Police is effective when it enjoys community support. This support is perceptual. It can be shaped by facts. However, in the absence of comprehensive facts and widespread community engagement in policy design, community attitudes are shaped by anecdotes, personal experiences and the views of respected community members.
The survey participants are expected to have some knowledge of road traffic trauma prevention or simply road safety strategies. Please, invite others to complete this survey. Thank you, in advance, for your support in promoting this survey.
This survey is confidential. No participant will be identified in the publications resulting from it. The responses will be used as aggregate items. The results will form part of two academic studies, which will be available in peer-reviewed journals. Supporting institutions and survey participants will receive a report of the survey. Survey participants can indicate their willingness to receive a copy of the report by contacting Dr Joao Canoquena through firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
