Circumstances of Observed Travel
Milwaukee - Table 3.8 provides a more detailed account of the observed travel of the 57 Milwaukee subjects. The table summarizes travel during the weekday morning observation and the Friday/Saturday evening observation conducted during the suspension period. For the 3 subjects whose license was reinstated, the table also summarizes their travel during the observations conducted after reinstatement. After reinstatement, all 3 persons drove during the Friday/Saturday observation, and none were observed traveling during the weekday morning observation.
For the during-suspension observations, the results for the weekday
morning and the evening observations did not differ dramatically. During
the weekday morning observations, 16 persons drove and 5 persons used
other transportation; during the evening observations, 18 persons drove
and 3 persons used alternative transportation (Table 3.8). The 8 trips
made with alternative transportation included subjects walking (2) or
riding as passengers (6).
As noted previously, of the three Milwaukee subjects whose license was reinstated, two subjects drove during one of the during-suspension observation periods and during one of the post-reinstatement observation periods. The third subject did not travel during either during-suspension observation but drove during one post-reinstatement observation.
Bergen County - The detailed results for observed travel in Bergen County are provided in Table 3.9. The results show different patterns of travel between weekday mornings and evenings for the during-suspension observations. Of the 12 persons observed traveling during the weekday morning observation, 2 drove and 10 used alternative transportation. In contrast, of the 14 persons observed traveling during the evening observation, 7 drove and 7 used alternative transportation. Thus, the driving observed for the during-suspension observations was more likely to occur during the evening observations. For the post-suspension observations, of the 12 persons traveling during the weekday morning observation, 9 drove and 3 used alternative transportation. Of the 11 persons traveling during the evening observation, 10 drove.
The 17 during-suspension trips that involved alternative transportation
included subjects riding as passengers (11), walking (3), and walking
and riding a bus or train (3). With regard to passengers transported,
only 1 of the 9 during-suspension driving trips involved the transportation
of a passenger.
Subjects' travel patterns were compared for the during-suspension and post-suspension observations for the 28 Bergen County subjects whose license was reinstated. Nine subjects did not drive during either of the during-suspension observation periods but drove during at least one post-reinstatement observation period. Three drove during one of the during-suspension periods and during both periods after reinstatement. Only one subject was observed driving during one of the during-suspension periods but not after reinstatement. Of the 8 subjects who did not have their license reinstated, 5 did not travel during either of the during-suspension observations, and 1 walked, 1 rode as a passenger, and 1 drove during one of the observations.
