From 1975 the Institute has carried out research on speed control in local areas. The work can be divided into four main parts: 1) A survey of driving speeds in residential areas. Peoples' opinion on driving speeds. 2) Short-term tests of different speed reducing measures: speed limits (30 km/h), speed zones (30 km/h), humps, narrowing of streets, speed limits near schools at certain times of day. 3) Long-term effects of thee same measures. 4) Survey of how the different communities have used different measures. Due to the small number of accidents the effects are measured as speed reduction. For the covering abstract of the seminar see TRIS 450556. (TRRL)
