This paper presents the actual speed management stage on public roads from Republic of Moldova and the authors' vision to improve it. Based on the findings of state authorities that the main cause of several accidents is the inadequate speed, this paper presents a number of criteria and recommendations for speed management on the road and a proposal for an efficient speed management according to the best practices in the field. The paper presents a significant case study realized on a modernized road, which studies the correlation between speed legislation and capacity and the technical characteristics of the rehabilitated road for an efficient traffic fluidization. The results of the study were focused on proposals for re-evaluation of the speed management on public roads, including the re-evaluation of the network classification and establishing a unitary concept, in order to have proper safety and fluency of movement.
