Request for participation in on line survey

Request for participation in on line survey

I am passing on this request.


I am a doctoral student in the SUNY Downstate School of Public Health in Brooklyn, New York.  I am conducting a dissertation research project which utilizes an anonymous on-line survey of bicyclists to investigate whether there is an association between specific bicycling practices and traffic accident risk.  Bicycling practices of interest include: bicyclist speed, alertness to potential hazards, response to traffic signals, direction of travel in relation to traffic, and other practices.  Accident risk includes actual traffic accidents or "close calls".  It would be most helpful to be able to reach out to groups of people who ride bicycles. Therefore, I am requesting your assistance in communicating to your subscribers to invite them to participate in my study.

My Bicycling Safety Survey is available on-line.  To enable you to share this information with your readers and subscribers, I have attached an "official" invitation in PDF format, which you can copy and place within your own newsletter, email message, or other communication.  The text of the invitation contains a link which will take the reader directly to the survey.  If another format would be more useful, please let me know.

I also attach a WORD document showing the survey items (exported from the on-line survey), so that you can see exactly what the survey contains.

If you have any concern about potential abuses, please know that my study has been approved by Downstate's Institutional Review Board (IRB), which requires adherence to strict standards designed to protect human subjects.  To reiterate.....  the survey is completely anonymous.

I would be very grateful if you will send my invitation to your subscribers, along with any words of encouragement you would like to add.  If possible, please also let me know when you have passed the information along.

Thank you very much for your consideration of my request!

Best wishes,

Mark Hoglund



A RESEARCH STUDY ABOUT BICYCLING AND SAFETY
DEAR FELLOW BICYCLE RIDERS,
IF YOU ARE 18 OR OLDER, please take part in an anonymous survey
for a research study about bicycling practices and bicycling
accidents. The survey will take only about 15-20 minutes to fill out.
IT DOES NOT MATTER WHETHER OR NOT YOU HAVE HAD AN
ACCIDENT RIDING YOUR BICYCLE. Your answers will help
researchers find out how to make bicycling safer.
YOU WILL NOT BE ASKED FOR YOUR NAME. No one will find out
how you answered the questions.
TO GO TO THE SURVEY, please use this link:

THANK YOU! If you have any questions, please feel free to call me.
(I won't ask you to tell me your name. )

I have the Word document and would be glad to forward Mark's original email containing the entire survey to anyone requesting it. It is 13 pages long and will not fit into this post.

Re: Request for participation in on line survey

Hi Ed,
Can you put the survey in the files section of Glenelg Gang and HoCoCyclists list-serv's and I can also send it to Jack at BAHC for input from his list (which I'm not on).

That will at least get it out on the lists that still support files.  It is one of the big disappointments is of our "new" BBC forum over the old list-serv.
Thanks,
Stuart

Re: Request for participation in on line survey

This is a wonderful opportunity for BBC members to  make a difference in bike safety on the road. This study if conducted well with a large response could help provide to data necessary for grant funding for further research and even future legislation guiding bike safety. this would include bike lane design.

Thanks Ed for sharing.
Hope many will consider participating.

I hope he follows up with a parallel study of the association between specific motorist practices and [bicycle] accident risk....
