Traffic Injury Research Foundation asks for Survey Participants.

Hamilton Niagara Fleet Safety Council

TIRF is an independent road safety research institute that is conducting a study which is funded by the MTO to gather information on drug and alcohol screening policies within the trucking and transit sectors. Upon completion of the study the results will support larger MTO research projects to support and address the concerns of key stakeholders to ensure that Ontario’s transportation safety policies are as effective as possible.

This initiative was supported by the following industry stakeholders and associations:

·        Infrastructure Health and Safety Association (IHSA)

·        Metrolinx 

·        OC Transpo 

·        Ontario Motor Coach Association (OMCA) 

·        Ontario Public Transit Association (OPTA) 

·        Ontario Trucking Association (OTA) 

·        Private Motor Truck Council of Canada (PMTC) 

·        School Bus Ontario (SBO) 

·        Transit Windsor 

The 15-minute survey focusses on alcohol and drug use among commercial motor vehicle drivers in Ontario. Those completing the survey are asked to answer the questions to the best of their ability and based on their organization’s experiences. Please note that all responses will be treated as confidential and no personal information on any individuals or organizations will be shared with the MTO or any of the stakeholders.

TIRF will also be donating $50 dollars to a transportation specific charity for each completed survey. Those completing the survey will be asked which charity is preferred and the charity with the most votes will receive the donation.
