The report describes the Columbus, Ohio, program of the Operational Characteristics Study (OCS) which monitored the driving patterns of 47 private citizens in Columbus, Ohio, over a nine-month period from April 1983 to January 1984. These citizens were loaned one of four vehicles equipped with time, speed, distance, and temperature recording devices to gather a total of 251 days of in-use data. The report describes the details of the program, the results, and a comparison of the average trip statistics to the Federal Test Procedure used in exhaust emissions testing for motor vehicles.
