Road Safety and Speed Management: A Study Led by the Motorists' Forum

This study has been initiated by the Motorists’ Forum in response to an invitation from the Commission for Integrated Transport for the Forum to help develop the (United Kingdom) Government's road safety strategy and a request by the Secretary of State for Transport to undertake a more detailed investigation of speed management. The report concludes that speed is a contributory factor in accidents and that the management of speed is an important element in any successful effort to reduce deaths and injuries on the roads. But to devise a strategy which is both effective and commands the support of the motoring public is not straightforward. This report sets out the authors' approach. It recognises that the interaction between the road, the vehicle and the driver is complex, and that effective action will involve many players. All of them need to commit to programmes of coordinated action in a whole range of areas including engineering, technology, training, communication, regulation and its enforcement.
