RESULTS OF SPEED ZONING ON RURAL HIGHWAYS

A SURVEY OF SEVERAL BEFORE-AND-AFTER STUDIES COVERING TRAFFIC-ACCIDENT EXPERIENCE AND MOTOR-VEHICLE SPEEDS ON SECTIONS OF SPEED-ZONED STATE TRUNK HIGHWAYS IN WISCONSIN IS PRESENTED. THE SURVEY WAS MADE TO PROVIDE FACTUAL INFORMATION FOR EVALUATING THE EFFECTIVENESS OF SPEED ZONING FOR THE CONTROL OF TRAFFIC SPEEDS AND FOR THE REDUCTION OF ACCIDENTS ON THE RURAL STATE HIGHWAY SYSTEM OF WISCONSIN. REVIEW OF THE DATA INDICATES THAT SPEED ZONING ON RURAL HIGHWAYS MAY BE EXPECTED TO RESULT GENERALLY IN A SUBSTANTIAL REDUCTION IN FREQUENCY AND SEVERITY OF MOTOR- VEHICLE TRAFFIC ACCIDENTS. /AUTHOR/
