In a non-scientific poll posted on this site, you were asked:
Since the new sanctions for drinking and driving (Warn Range Suspensions) were enacted on May 1, 2009 do you:
Drink less if you are driving: 50%
Ensure there is a designated driver: 7%
Rely more on taxi, transit, limo: 7%
Haven't changed my behaviour: 35%
Once again there is a missing one percent...I really wish I knew were it keeps disappearing to.
This is a good news poll in my opinion. I love hearing that people are making the decision to drink less. You know the response of all police officers and road safety advocates...if you drink, don't drive. The designated driver is a great option as long as they stick to no drinking. Just like transit, taxi's and limos, putting the driving in the hands of a sober person is an awesome choice.
I hope that the people that haven't changed their behaviour are the ones that never drink and drive in the first place. If it is the alternative, I hope we meet real soon and not by accident.
That brings me to the new poll question for the week. Recently there have been several high profile investigations involving every class of road user. So I'll ask you:
What class of road user is the most dangerous?
Automobile (car, light truck, van etc.)
Commercial Motor Vehicle (big rigs, buses)
Other wheel device (skateboard, roller blade)
