Speed

In many countries, speeding has become one of the most important risk factors contributing to road traffic fatalities and injuries. When vehicles are driven at high speed, the likelihood and severity of crashes increases, which leads to speed management becoming an essential tool for improving road safety. As one of the most fundamental rules of road traffic operations, speeds greatly influence not only traffic safety and operations but also climate impacts and air and noise pollution. By reducing the likelihood of vehicle-to-vehicle conflicts and conflicts among vehicles, cyclists, and pedestrians, an appropriate speed limit can enhance the safety of driving as well as walking, cycling, and motorbike riding. Setting safe speed limits, along with the supporting infrastructure and enforcement, is one of the most important ways to enhance traffic safety and secure the efficiency of mobility on roadways

Textbooks and /or training materials that will be prepared in this sector include advice on speed management.
