  • Abstract:
    This plan is part of the continuing commitment by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Federal Highway Administration to reduce the number of speed-related fatalities and injuries occurring on our highways. Since the repeal of the National Maximum Speed Limit (NSML), in December 1995, many states have raised speed limits on both Interstate and non-Interstate roads. To address these changes, the agencies have refocused planned speed management activities, and new tasks have been added. The first new task is a complete reexamination of criteria used to determine and set speed limits. Secondly, a report to Congress will require the secretary to prepare a study of the costs to the state of deaths and injuries resulting from motor vehicle crashes, and the benefits associated with the repeal of the national maximum speed limit. The specific activities that are described in this report fall into five categories: 1. Improved Information and Analysis- to gather and analyze information designed to provide insight into the speeding problem and its associated consequences; 2. Speed Zoning- to develop and implement rational criteria for setting speed limits; 3. Technology Development- to identify, develop, and evaluate applicable speed management technologies; 4. Enforcement- to develop innovative and effective speed enforcement methods, strategies, and programs; and 5. Public Information and Education.
