Abstract/Description

We know that inappropriate high speed (IHS) is related to driver collision frequency and severity. The strategic goals of this safety project are to inform drivers of the risks of IHS, to improve attitudes and behaviour in relation to speed choice and through this process to help explain speed management and enforcement policy. The research objectives of the project were to facilitate a more effective strategy in achieving these goals, with the specific project aim of answering the question: how can knowledge about the role of speed in accidents be best presented to achieve the strategic goals of informing drivers of the risks of IHS and improving attitudes and behaviour in relation to speed choice?
