Description The Road Safety Monitor is a unique, annual public opinion survey that takes the pulse of the nation on key traffic safety issues and tracks changes in the opinions and concerns of Canadians. The survey determines: what they know and don’t know about safe driving practices; how they behave on the highways; what their attitudes and opinions are on continuing and emerging road safety problems; and their views about existing and promising new ways to deal with them.

The findings and implications are widely disseminated to heighten awareness, improve knowledge, change behaviour, and create a demand for action to resolve critical road safety problems. The survey is conducted each year at the same time and contains a core set of questions to monitor trends. In addition, each year the survey probes a special traffic safety issue in depth.
