According to the police reports, the largest number of traffic violations and accidents are caused by prohibited and inadequate speed driving. Significant increase in traffic safety has been achieved in those countries where there is an adequate traffic management covering speed driving control using contemporary devices and equipment and corresponding public support. In the paper, there are results of the research on drivers’ attitudes on introducing speed limit, speeding control and its effect on the causes and consequences of car accidents. The effect of the manner and frequency of speeding control on drivers’ behaviour while driving was determined through speed measuring and recording in the chosen risky parts of the road. The offenders were interviewed and polled on the reasons for consecutive speed limit violations. Based on those results, conclusions were drawn on possibilities for increasing traffic safety through better speed management and application of adequate speed control and stricter violation sanctioning. The effect of risk from violation discovery and sanctioning on drivers’ behaviour in traffic was researched. Deterrence from violation discovery affects prevention from improper and inconsiderate behaviour in traffic and thus creates the increase in traffic safety on the roads.
