BCAA (British Columbia Automobile Association) is conducting a poll to find out if the law banning hand-held phones and texting while driving has resulted in better drivers and safer roads.
The agency is asking drivers to fill out an online survey to find out whether the law is working. It conducted a similar survey last summer and the results were positive.
“We learned that most drivers were aware of the new law and were complying with it,” said Trace Acres, BCAA’s spokesperson. “What we want to find out now is if compliance is increasing or if drivers are slipping back into their old habits.”
Some of the questions include: Are you abiding by the law? What do you see other drivers doing? Is the law being adequately enforced? Do you think the law has made roads safer?
The survey will be available until January 20.
