EFFECTS OF SPEED LIMITS ON SPEED BEHAVIOR AND TRAFFIC SAFETY

In Poland, driver choice of speed can be influenced by engineering measures and immediate surroundings of roads, by imposing and enforcing speed limits, and by educating society - particularly drivers. Effective implementation of compliance with general and local speed limits depends on: -- countrywide verification of the existing speed limits and implementation practice in order to restore their reliability; -- encouraging and convincing mass media and society to accept the speed limits in order to improve road safety; -- possibility of conducting intensive enforcement, particularly in the implementation stage; -- designing of infrastructure to encourage appropriate speed.
