NHTSA Ped/Bike Survey Results

I haven’t yet had a chance to read through the entire report myself, but I thought I would post some links now for everyone to enjoy and I’d post my comments later when I’ve had a chance to complete my read of it.

National Survey of Bicyclist and Pedestrian Attitudes and Behavior

This report presents findings from the National Survey of Bicyclist and Pedestrian Attitudes and Behavior, jointly sponsored by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) and administered by The Gallup Organization.
