The Survey

On average, more than 500 people die on Maryland roadways annually. The Maryland Highway Safety Office, a division within the Maryland Motor Vehicle Administration in collaboration with the National Study Center for Trauma and EMS at the University of Maryland Baltimore, is conducting voluntary surveys of Maryland motorists about pressing safety issues on our roadways. This research covers a variety of topics including, but not limited to, impaired driving, speeding, occupant protection, pedestrian/bicycle safety, and motorcycle safety. The results of this research will help in developing effective messaging and investments that will help reduce needless and preventable motor vehicle crash-related deaths and injuries. 

Let us know how we’re doing by taking our surveys (5 to 10 minutes each) about highway safety in Maryland. Your input will go a long way in helping shape new and existing highway safety programs within Maryland, including enforcement and education efforts. The survey is voluntary and no personal information will be collected. You have the right to refuse to answer any questions. The survey is open to the public between October 15th, 2020 and August 15th, 2021. We are anticipating up to 10,000 participants annually.
