Lowering speeds can save lives
Reductions in vehicle travel speeds can be achieved through lowered speed limits, police enforcement of speed limits, community-based speed reduction programs and public education. Long-term speed reductions in neighborhoods where vehicles and pedestrians commonly share the roadway can be achieved through engineering approaches generally known as traffic calming.
