NHTSA Plans Survey Research Into Causes Of Speeding

Transport Topics reports, “With continuing concerns about speeding on the nation’s highways, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration plans to conduct a survey-research effort to ask 1,500 drivers with one or more recent speeding tickets why they speed — and why others with no violations don’t speed. To conduct the survey for the research effort, NHTSA is seeking approval from the White House Office of Management and Budget for a voluntary survey of licensed drivers in Washington state, age 18 and older.” NHTSA plans to conduct the research in coordination with Washington State safety and licensing agencies.
