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