This paper discusses the use of a telematics application, remote speed control, in mixed traffic to ensure the safety of all travelers. It divides the traffic into fast moving vehicles (motorized transportation) and slow moving vehicles (non-motorized, including pedestrians, cyclists, wheel-chair users, and horsemen). It notes that separation of facilities is frequently used in The Netherlands to solve this dilemma, but in rural areas, with one-lane roads, separation is not feasible. If the slow moving traffic and fast moving traffic can be aware of each other at the exact time necessary to make speed or passing adjustments, traveler safety would be more likely. A Road Traffic Information system, utilized by both types of traffic on rural roads, is presented as a solution to this traffic and safety dilemma.
