Speed Limit Enforcement

Enforcement of speed limit for traffic, such as patrolling and speed cameras, reduces speed levels, road crashes and injuries. There is robust international and local evidence that speed limit enforcement reduces driving speeds, road crashes, number of fatalities and severity of injuries. There is some international evidence that the effects of speed enforcement are greater when a new form of speed enforcement is introduced and for more serious crashes. There is some international evidence that randomised speed enforcement is effective.
