VIC Sharing the road campaign - "Travel Happy"

Discussion in 'Politics, Laws, Government & Insurance' started by robsalvv, Feb 26, 2015.

  1. Vicroads are launching a "Share the road" campaign in April to encourage motorists, cyclists, trucks, pedestrians and motorbikes to have mutual respect on Victorian roads. The goal is to encourage road users to Travel Happy together, hence the "Travel Happy" campaign.

    In the lead-up to the launch of the campaign they are conducting a survey of different road users to get an understanding of the community’s current attitudes. The results from the survey will be used for PR/media purposes.

    Motorcyclists are one of our key audiences for the campaign and they want 200 riders to undertake a brief online survey (found at this link) http://direct.pureprofile.com/s3/haystac.

    Have a look at the survey - here's your chance to help influence the campaign.

    If you have any comments or concerns, leave them below, I'll pass them onto the Travel happy team.

  2. Suspicious me is worried it's another survey-trap to report that all motorcyclists are hoons.
  3. Done. Not bad, some of the ones about the way other road user impact my commute was a bit broad, none of them were quite on the mark - an 'other - please specify' option would have helped.
  4. I understand the suspicion but we need to try and have our voice heard as well. Completed, it.
  5. I think it's a great idea - to try and change the attitude of drivers on the roads to be more friendly and considerate of others. It's a huge difference traveling in areas where people are polite, helpful, etc compared to people with a selfish and aggressive attitude.
  6. On first reading ..What do you hate most about other road users ? Looks like their preparing a story for channel 9

  7. Did everyone do the survey as a rider ? if you do the Survey as a driver do they ask the question ""what annoys you the most about MC riders ? what are the 4 options ?

    looks as you can only complete the survey once. ? did try on 3 different devices .
  8. Done.. Although the questions where pretty generic.
  9. I tried opening the survey in two different Private browser sessions. Completed the first one as a rider, then went to do the second as a driver and only got to enter my State, age, gender and the postcode before being booted to the completion page. :(

    Try a VPN or an IP spoofing method.

    I was actually contemplating writing a script/bot + VPN tunnel combo to stack the results....
    Then I realised I have dogs to walk, beers to drink and steak to BBQ....

    Maybe later...
  13. That's what I was trying to discover, but thought if I only got the one chance I'd prefer to do so as a rider. I guess we"ll have to wait and see if somebody does it as a driver and can show/tell us any differences.

    C'mon man, don't leave us hanging! We gots ta know! Was it six shots, or only five?

  14. Pretty basic algorithm.

    If you answer car as mode of transport the outcome is set.
    Same for pushbike,
    Same for moto,
    Same for public transport.

    The model is biased by it's design.
    Survey is invalid.

  16. Surely deleting your cookies and reconnecting your modem (to get a new IP addy) would be sufficient? Christ, it can't be that bloody sophisticated can it?
  17. What are the differences? "The outcome is set." Meaning?
  18. Only if your ISP has not set IP affinity.
  19. The entire survey is weighted on that one specific answer.

    Essentially - that answer sets an arbitrary value which must map to an outcome they are trying to prove/disprove.

    A form of "Null hypothesis testing"

    Rejecting or disproving the null hypothesis—and thus concluding that there are grounds for believing that there is a relationship between two phenomena (e.g. that a potential treatment has a measurable effect)
  20. I understand the theory. Can you please enlighten us as to exactly what the various "set" outcomes are in each scenario, and from that what do you think this "survey" is trying to be "prove" from this?
