Speeding is responsible for around one third of the current, unacceptably high levels of road fatalities. Reducing average speeds on the roads by only 5% will save around 20% of current fatalities. This Report, prepared by a Working Group of the Joint OECD/ECMT Transport Research Centre, addresses the key issues and highlights the improvements in policy and operations needed to reduce the extent of speeding. It outlines a framework for achieving the best possible safety outcomes while protecting the environment and supporting sustainable mobility.
