Title: Survey of Drivers' Attitudes on Speeding and Speed Limits.

Abstract: The FHWA plans to enter into a cooperative agreement with the State of Massachusetts to initiate a project entitled “Demonstration and Evaluation of Rational Speed Limits,” to be performed by the Governor's Highway Safety Bureau of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. As part of this cooperative agreement, information on local drivers' attitudes towards speeding, speed limits and enforcement will be gathered through a survey. A survey will be performed both before and after engineering, enforcement and educational measures to reduce speeding are implemented. The information obtained from the survey will help the FHWA understand the effectiveness of the measures and drivers' responses to them. The responses to the survey will be voluntary and will not involve information that is required by regulations. There will be not direct costs to the respondents other than their time.

Respondents: Drivers in Natick, Massachusetts.

Estimated Total Annual Burden: The burden hours per response will be approximately 10 minutes. We estimate that a total of 800 drivers (400 “before” and 400 “after”) will be involved in the survey. Therefore, the total estimate is 133 burden hours.
