Speed

Speeding presents a road safety hazard and affects people's quality of life.

Effective speed management is an important element of the Partnership's casualty reduction strategy, which includes:

  • reviewing speed limits to ensure they are appropriate for the roads
  • introducing engineering measures, including traffic-calming solutions, to reduce traffic speeds in hazardous locations
  • ensuring speed limits are appropriately signed so that drivers are aware of the limit that applies
  • increasing road users knowledge and understanding of speed limits
  • encouraging greater compliance with speed limits by raising awareness of the hazards of speeding
  • enforcing speed limits using a range of enforcment methods, covert and overt
  • operating safety cameras (fixed, mobile and average speed cameras) at casualty trouble-spots / roadworks
  • operating Vehicle-Activated Signs (VAS) at selected locations as a high visibility speed limit reminder for speeding drivers to correct their speed
  • prosecuting people detected speeding
