New Report: Washington Drivers Respect Laws, Aware of Safety Campaigns
The Washington Traffic Safety Commission recently released the results of a survey titled, "Drivers Attitude, Knowledge and Awareness Survey 2011." The results reveal that 90 percent of drivers believe law enforcement will arrest them for driving drunk and 75 percent believe officers will catch them for driving 8 miles per hour over the speed limit. Two-thirds said they never speed on neighborhood streets.
Nearly two-thirds of drivers said they see or hear public safety messages from the state discouraging irresponsible behaviors such as drunk or sleepy driving, or texting while driving.
