3 PUERTO RICO ROAD SAFETY / DISTRACTED DRIVING STUDY 2015 INTRODUCTION The PUERTO RICO TRAFFIC SAFETY COMMISSION (CST by its Spanish acronym) commissioned TMC Qualitative (TMCQ) to conduct a study to better understand driving habits in Puerto Rico and also, measure the effectiveness of media campaigns on several issues, such as seat belt usage, speeding, safety / distraction and driving under the influence of alcohol. RESEARCH OBJECTIVES The study was formulated to fulfill the following objectives: To generate information about habits and attitudes of drivers in Puerto Rico, and the degree to which these occur among Puerto Rico drivers, regarding: o Seatbelt usage o Speeding o Distracted Driving o Driving under the influence of alcohol o Measure effectiveness of educational campaigns regarding before mentioned issues. DESIGN A total of 600 person to person interviews were conducted among licensed drivers, 16 years* of age or older, that drive a motor vehicle, at least on several occasions per week. Interviews were conducted at participants homes. Fieldwork was conducted during the month of June, *In consideration of the legal drinking age, two questions were not presented to participants younger than 18 years: Q23. How many drinks can you have and still be able to drive? Q24. In the past 30 days, have you driven after drinking alcohol?*
