SEMCOG and MAC "Pulse of the Region" Survey Asks for Citizen Perspectives on Driving Behaviors in Southeast Michigan
Last year there were more than 128,000 traffic crashes in the Metro Detroit area in which 363 people lost their lives and over 35,000 were injured. While it is easy to say that “accidents happen,” the reality is that many of these crashes occurred and many of these lives were lost due to inappropriate driving behaviors.
In an effort to impact quality of life in Southeast Michigan by keeping our roads and highways safer, SEMCOG, the Southeast Michigan Council of Governments, and its partner organization MAC, the Metropolitan Affairs Coalition, have launched a survey to gather driver perceptions on dangerous activities behind the wheel.
Citizens are asked to take this quick survey to provide their perspective on dangerous driving behaviors and help guide future traffic safety education and outreach efforts to make roads safer.
The survey focuses on the three main categories of driver behavior that lead to traffic crashes: impaired driving, aggressive driving, and distracted driving.
This survey is powered by Cobalt Community Research, a Michigan-based 501c3 nonprofit research coalition with a mission to provide research and educational tools that help schools, local governments, and other nonprofit member organizations thrive as changes emerge in the economic, demographic, and social landscape.
