Temporal Trends in Indicators of Traffic Safety Culture among Drivers in the United States, 2009-2012

This report provides a multi-year analysis of the Foundation's four most recent Traffic Safety Culture Index surveys (2009-2012), and offers insights into the trends observed since AAAFTS began studying and tracking the nation's safety culture. While much has remained relatively stable, there are some potentially-troubling findings as well, such as a general decrease in the public's perception of the threat posed by impaired, distracted, and drowsy drivers.
