RESOURCE - Speed Management for Safety

Speed DemonThe Speed Management for Safety site was created by the Institute of Transportation Engineers as a resource for all transportation professionals seeking to safely manage speeds. The interactive website is also a good reference for anyone having an interest in the subject.

The site contains four main areas of focus:

  1. Speed as a Safety Problem covers the relationship of speed to crash causation and fatalities.
  2. Setting Speed Limits provides approaches and factors to determine speed limits based on various road conditions.
  3. Measures for Managing Speed summarizes how the 3 Es — engineering, enforcement, and education — can be used to provide effective speed management and safe streets.
  4. Creating a Speed Management Program guides creation of a comprehensive speed management program in all types of communities.
