MANUAL FOR THIRTY KILOMETER PER HOUR MEASURES

HANDBOEK DERTIG KILOMETER PER UUR MAATREGELEN

As from April 1, 1983, it became possible to introduce a maximum speed limit in the Netherlands of thirty kilometer per hour inside built-up areas. Initially a traffic sign was used on each corner of the street, thereafter a new traffic sign which could be used for a whole region was developed and covered by legislation. The road administrator has to fulfil certain requirements before he is allowed to introduce this thirty kilometer per hour speed limit. These requirements are mostly related to the situation at the location; the road or the highway must have an appearance such that a thirty km/hour speed limit is logical. In most cases speed reducing provisions should be present. This manual will be a guide for the road administrator in the determination of these speed limiting provisions. (TRRL)
