The representative survey draws a picture of motorized road transport in Germany, with emphasis on small vehicles with up to 3.5 tonnes of payload. Other vehicles types were included on top, although in lesser numbers. The survey was carried out by requesting vehicle owners to monitor all trips that were carried out by the vehicle during one day. Information on the trip purpose, type of trip source and destination, kilometers driven, information on possible freight as well as number of passengers and others are on record. Further, information on vehicle and owner is given. In total, the survey contains information of about 70.000 vehicles that generated 120.000 trips. Survey period: November 2009 to October 2010.
