You are invited to participate in a study of SIDEWALK ACCESSIBILITY FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES. Under the management of Dr. Kara Kockelman, Assistant Professor at the University of Texas at Austin, a research team is investigating the comfort of people with disabilities on various elements of a sidewalk (ramps, curbcuts, etc.) for different designs. Any person with a disability that might impact her/his travel on sidewalks is welcome as a participant. If you choose to participate, you will be one of many. All responses are very valuable for this work.
If you choose to participate, please fill out the remainder of this survey. It should take out 10 minutes for the most basic data. If you like, there is an extra part that will take you another 20 minutes. The data you provide will then be tabulated along with the data of others; this will be done without any information that identifies respondents uniquely. Any information that is obtained in connection with this study and that can be identified with you will remain confidential, unless you provide us with permission to contact you regarding participation in a field test (by providing your contact information to us at the following page). Please avoid duplicate participation.
Please note that your decision to participate or not participate in this study will not affect your future relations with the University of Texas at Austin or any other agency or person in any way. You are under no obligation to participate in the study. Your completing this questionnaire will be taken as evidence of your willingness to participate and your consent to have the information used for purposes of the study.
Thank you very much for your time and cooperation!
