Three months in a row now…for three months in a row we have surpassed 40,000 illegal passes in our monthly COUNT DAY…that is nothing to celebrate but it’s important to know.
Here’s the reality about our COUNT DAY: in 2015-2016, we averaged 29,083 passes each month. So far in 2016-2017, we are averaging 40,041 passes on our survey dates. Of even greater concern is the fact that our ‘right side’ passes have escalated as well averaging over 5,000 on each Count Day.
The results for our January 2017 COUNT DAY were as follows:
• Number of respondents: 35 operations
• Number of Drivers Reporting: 878
• AM Passes: 411
• Mid-Day Passes: 2
• PM Passes: 375
• Right Side Passes: 88
