DC Traffic Safety Survey

Thank you for your interest in this important research.

EurekaFacts is carrying out an important study on behalf of the District of Columbia Department of Transportation (DDOT).

We are working with DDOT to create effective messages about traffic safety by understanding the driving experiences and behaviors of those who drive in and around DC. We are also interested in where you get information and what ad messages work best.

The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete.

All responses are confidential, and any information reported will be in combination with other responses.
