This webinar will include presentations of Speed Management Strategies in US and around the globe. The webinar is part of a Road to Zero Grant that was awarded to ITE and Vision Zero Network (VZN) to create Speed Management Training Material. For more information visit Speed Management for Safety resource hub and Speed Management community portal. Learning Objectives:
Participants will learn about US and global approaches to speed management Noteworthy speed management practices will be presented that will cover engineering countermeasures for speed reduction. Participants will learn about agency's experience in executing strategies such as optical speed zone, radar‐actuated driver feedback speed limit signs, Traffic Calming Curbs, and systemic approach to speed management.
