The objective of the project is to be aware of the opinions and attitudes of Poles on basic and current road safety problems.
The survey was provided nationwide, at the random sample of n = 1000, representatives of Poles aged 15 and over. Both the total sample and the created subgroups were based on demographic variables (gender, age, education, occupational status - working / not working, place of residence) and the fact of having or not having a driving license (driver / non-driver).
When analysing the results of individual groups (e.g. driver / non-driver, male / female etc.), it is important to know the size of these groups, because it involves a change in the size of statistical error (the smaller the sample size, the greater the error, hence rarely recorded statistical significance of differences within the obtained results), so all charts contain information about the size of each group.
USE OF POLISH ROADS
58% of Poles declare to have a driving license, but in the vast majority - 99%, it is the B category driving license.
The driving license is hold by three out of four men (concerning the A and C category of driving license, these are hold practically only by men) and slightly more than half of the women (56%) hold the driving license.
Drivers are mostly people between 25 and 60 years of life.
The most common way to move for Poles is car driving (38%), of almost 30% it is
walking, and for every fourth person it is public transport.
Men more often than women drive cars, while women often walk.
The youngest people mostly use the public transport, the oldest ones walking or
riding a bike.
Compared to the issues such as the Polish health care or unemployment, issues related to roads - i.e. traffic accidents and congestion, they are interesting for a little less number of Poles - about 70%.
The greatest interest in this subject is declared by drivers, men, people aged 25-39 years who are professionally educated and working.
Only 40% of Poles were trained in the field of first aid, and a little more than half of drivers were involved in such a training.
This survey is very important as a base for further research, especially in the field of transport safety and security.
