INCLUDED. A DISCUSSION OF AVAILABLE LITERATURE ON SPEED PRECEDES A CRITICAL EVALUATION OF THE PROJECT AND DISCUSSION OF THE CURRENT STATUS OF KNOWLEDGE ON SPEED AND SPEED REGULATION. RESEARCH, IT IS CONCLUDED, HAS DEALT PRIMARILY WITH ROADWAY AND VEHICLE FACTORS INFLUENCING SPEED WHILE MORE STUDY NEEDS TO BE MADE OF THE DRIVERS INFLUENCES. THIS AND OTHER AREAS FOR FUTURE RESEARCH ARE DETAILED IN THE FINAL SECTION OF THE REPORT.
