Background

The purpose of this study is to assess the awareness of licensed drivers regarding Share the Road Safely messages. The study will assist FMCSA in developing future STRS campaign messages and identifying target audiences and distribution strategies. The data will be collected through a telephone survey. Results of the study will not be published, but used for internal research purposes by FMCSA to assess its outreach activities and identify opportunities to help raise the public's awareness of driving safely in, or around, large trucks and vehicles. A follow-up survey will be conducted two years after the initial data collection and compared against the results from the baseline assessment.
