Public agencies are recognizing that changing approaches to speed limit settings will lead to reducing serious injuries and fatalities. National organizations have recommended new guidance to setting speeds based on data other than just prevailing speeds. Several major U.S. cities have lowered city-wide statutory speed limits as part of Vision Zero efforts. In this session, you will hear from agency staff working at the local, state, and national levels on why and how they are focused on adopting new practices to speed limit setting.
- Describe the current state of speed limit setting nationally.
- Report on agencies make strides in speed management for safety.
