Noteworthy Speed Management Practices

Speeding contributes to over a quarter of all road trauma and is a persistent driving behavior that brings harm both to the vehicle occupants as well as other more vulnerable road users. In 2018, speeding related crashes resulted in 9,378 deaths which is a staggering 26 percent of all crash fatalities. Agencies who want to address speeding are often faced with a lack of resources in setting appropriate speeds for conditions, pushback on changing speed limits, a lack of resources for countermeasures or enforcement, and restrictions or opposition to alternate long-lasting enforcement options such as safety cameras. This report provides another avenue of information for practitioners in that it summarizes eight case studies which highlight noteworthy practices over a range of speed management issues.
