In 2012, NHTSA anticipates sponsoring demonstration projects in multiple locations to conduct interventions with the purpose of reducing impaired motorcycle riding. NHTSA plans to evaluate these interventions to determine their effectiveness. A key component of this evaluation effort will use brief interviews to assess motorcycle riders' knowledge of the intervention, self-reported drinking and riding behavior, and belief that alcohol-impaired driving laws are enforced for all motorists, including motorcycle riders in the areas in which the interventions will occur.
In-person interviews will be conducted with motorcycle riders in up to 4 program locations, and in up to 3 comparison locations not carrying out an intervention. Motorcycle riders will be interviewed at sites within the program and comparison locations where riders congregate. Interview length will average 5 minutes and will collect information on attitudes, awareness, knowledge, and behavior related to the intervention.
The interviews will follow a pre-post design where they are administered prior to the implementation of the intervention and after its conclusion. For interventions where a pre-post design would not be possible (
