Summary
This special topic poll, fielded January 27-31, 2005, was undertaken to assess public opinion on traffic congestion in the Washington, DC, area. Respondents who commuted in the greater Washington, DC, area were asked about traffic conditions in the region, their primary means of transportation to and from work, the length of their commute, what they liked and disliked most about their commute, and whether they had ever relocated or adjusted their work schedule to improve their commute. Those polled rated the different types of public transportation available in the area, how often they used the Metrorail subway system, and why they did not ride it more often. Views were sought on proposals to expand the Metrorail system and build new highways in the area, sources of funding for transportation projects, and whether measures such as high occupancy vehicle lanes, adjustable tolls, and building new roads were effective in easing traffic congestion. Respondents were also asked about the type of vehicle they drove, how often they traveled by car, how much time they spent driving, and how often driving invoked feelings such as independence, relaxation, and anger. A series of questions asked respondents how often they and others were guilty of behaviors such as speeding or road rage, and whether they engaged in activities such as eating or reading while driving. Additional topics addressed the use of automatic cameras at traffic lights and stop signs and whether existing traffic laws were too tough on teenage drivers. Demographic variables included sex, age, race, household income, education level, and political party affiliation
