The holidays are still upon us, and so is the risk of contracting COVID-19. Please remember that our best protection from COVID-19 is a combination of wearing a mask, staying at least 6 feet away from others, avoiding crowds, washing your hands often, and getting a COVID-19 vaccine when available.

HELP KEEP FLORIDIANS
SAFE + MOBILE!

Participate in this quick survey by January 15th

Are you a Florida resident aged 50 or older? If so, we’d like to learn more about how you get from place to place in your daily life. The Safe Mobility for Life Survey is being conducted by the Florida Department of Transportation's Safe Mobility for Life Program/Coalition and Florida State University’s Pepper Institute on Aging and Public Policy. The survey, which takes about 15 minutes, asks about your driving habits and use of other types of transportation, as well as various factors that may affect them. We will not record your name or any other information that shows your identity. Your participation in this study will help us better understand the transportation needs of Floridians.

To take the survey, click here!

If you have any questions about this study, please contact Dr. Anne Barrett at FSU Pepper Institute on Aging and Public Policy (abarrett@fsu.edu).

On behalf of the Safe Mobility for Life Coalition, thank you for helping keep Floridians safe and mobile.
