5. PROGRAM EVALUATION (continued)
5.1.7 Vehicle Occupants
The number of people (including the driver) in the speeders' vehicles is shown in Table 17. Data in this table are combined for both Peoria and Phoenix . As might be expected (since many of the stops were made during rush hours), the majority of vehicles stopped in both cities contained a driver only (73% for Phoenix and 70.1% for Peoria ). There was a driver only or a driver with one passenger in 90.2 percent of the vehicles. The maximum number of occupants in any one vehicle was six.
