The negative consequences of speeding impact more than just one type of crash, person or place. The causes and effects of speeding-related crashes are often cross-cutting and preventative safety measures should be addressed in a comprehensive speed management program. In this transportation training, participants learn lifesaving countermeasures that shape speed management programs and how these can help communities combat speeding-related injuries and deaths.
This 1-day Instructor-led training emphasizes how state and local governments can improve community safety by integrating speed management principles into three critical safety focus areas: roadway departures, intersections, and pedestrians and bicyclists.
Training participants will discuss:
What percentage of roadway departure crashes are speeding-related?
Which types of intersections have the most speeding-related crashes?
What vehicle speed is hazardous for pedestrians and bicyclists?
Participants who complete this transportation training will be able to appropriately apply safety strategies and countermeasures to reduce traffic fatalities from speeding as part of a comprehensive speed management program.
The target audience of the FHWA Speed Management training includes Federal, State, tribal, and local transportation professionals, as well as law enforcement and other public safety advocates who are interested in having safer roadways through the application of speed management principles. This course is designed for learners at a basic or intermediate training level.
