SOME TECHNICAL SUGGESTIONS REGARDING SPEED LIMITS ON ROAD BENDS

ALCUNI SUGGERIMENTI TECHNICI SULL'IMPOSIZIONE DEL LIMITE DI VELOCITA NELLE CURVE PLANIMETRICHE STRADALI

Regarding the imposition of speed limits on road bends, this article argues that such limits must be conducive in all cases to a uniformity of driver behaviour which would lead to greater traffic safety. For this reason the speed limits installed at the approaches to curves should be based on A single constant safety coefficient which is representative of a generic danger as a quantitative assessment of a specific danger. A statistical analysis is presented for deriving the most adequate value (about 1.5) of such a safety coefficient. (TRRL)
