A bit of a limited survey, but did it anyway.
I felt that the questions were a bit loaded to give the answers that the survey owner wanted.
Of course we feel unsafe, people always infringing traffic laws, penalties should be increased. All a bit obvious - doesn't need a survey to conclude this?

Sad, the survey is on hehalf of police and crime commissioners, who by law have no direct influence over operstional policing matters.

Yes, rather limited in its scope.
"This survey will allow PCCs to assess the strength of public feeling to make our roads safer and, I hope, give the Government the evidence it needs to act."
If I was in the Govt., I think I'd want somewhat more robust and more detailed data on which to act. Perhaps that exists elsewhere.

In the pre-amble information, it would have been helpful if the APCC had linked to the two reports:
"This poll follows the recent reports, including the Parliamentary Advisory Council on Transport Safety’s report into Roads Policing, and the HMICFRS Roads Policing – Not Optional report."

Should anyone wish to explore those reports in more detail, they can be found at:
