Staysafe 34: a 50 km/h general urban speed limit for New South Wales

This report arises from a Ministerial Reference requesting STAYSAFE to examine a proposal to introduce a lower urban speed limit in New South Wales. STAYSAFE has concluded that the introduction of a 50 km/h general urban speed limit will bring New South Wales in line with best practice world-wide, and will yield considerable benefits - both social and financial - through reductions in road trauma. STAYSAFE has therefore recommended the adoption of a 50 km/h general urban speed limit in New South Wales. It is important that a 50 km/h general urban speed limit as a countermeasure to the problems of excessive and inappropriate speed should be introduced as one action within an integrated package of measures associated with traffic management, traffic law, police enforcement and communications strategies which will be required to make drivers aware of the new general urban speed limit.
