DC Traffic Safety Interviews

EurekaFacts LLC, a Maryland-based market research firm, is carrying out an important study for the District of Columbia Department of Transportation (DDOT). We are looking for DC residents to participate in an online confidential interview session to learn about where they get information about their community, their driving experiences and behaviors, and get their reactions to messages about traffic safety.

Participants will receive a $100 e-gift card for their time, and the interview will last up to 75 minutes.

Participation in this interview session is voluntary, and all responses will remain confidential. Your participation will have no impact on any of the benefits you may receive. Your input will be used to improve road safety in DC.
