AA Streetwatch 2

Junction Survey

AA Streetwatch 2 will look at driver behaviour at road junctions Thank you for supporting AA Streetwatch Surveys.

We started AA Streetwatch in 2010 with a one hour (roughly 2 mile) walking survey of road and footpath conditions near Streetwatchers' homes.

Streetwatch 2 - junctions

Now for the second survey we're going to look at driver behaviour – seatbelt wearing, mobile phone use, indicator use, speed and defective brake lights – at road junctions.

The survey is to be carried out in daylight at a road junction near your home at any time during the period 16 April to 9 May 2011.

This survey should take about an hour – depending on the number of cars passing through the junction.

Prize draw

We hope you will be able to find the time to carry out a survey. By doing so you will not only help support the AA's research and campaigning programme but you will also be automatically entered into our draws – 1st prize £500, 2nd prize a Virgin Ferrari Thrill Experience and 3rd prize £100 – when you submit your survey results online.

There are two steps to carrying out a survey - making your observations at the roadside and then entering your results into an online survey form hosted by Populus - our monthly members' opinion survey partner.
