Description

Cities, states, and national agencies are increasingly recognizing that managing vehicle speeds is an essential component to reducing serious injuries and fatalities from motor vehicles. National agencies including the National Traffic Safety Board and the National Committee on Uniform Traffic Control Devices have recommended removing or are considering removing guidance to set speeds based on the 85th percentile, and cities such as Boston and Seattle have lowered citywide speed limits as part of Vision Zero efforts. In this webinar, listen to change‐makers working at the local, state, and national levels to improve speed management practices while including equity considerations. The speakers will discuss managing speeds while being responsive to community input, recent national research, and state efforts to consider alternatives to the 85th percentile for speed setting.
