    • Abstract:
      Speeding is one of the most prevalent factors contributing to fatal and serious injury crashes and accounts for approximately one quarter of all traffic fatalities.1 It is a complex issue that cuts across all areas of transportation safety, from roadway departure, to intersection, to pedestrian and bicycle safety. As such, effective speed management can reduce fatalities and serious injuries in every safety focus area. To realize the vision of zero traffic deaths, stakeholders need to collaboratively plan and work together to implement speed management strategies. A Speed Management Action Plan (SMAP) is a shared action plan developed among transportation agencies and their partners. It can serve as the platform for stakeholder collaboration and planning as well as tie together speed management strategies and action steps of other safety plans, e.g., Strategic Highway Safety Plans (SHSP), roadway departure plans, intersection plans, pedestrian plans, and bicycle plans. SMAPs come in all shapes and sizes and should be tailored to the agency’s speed management needs. While each agency’s SMAP is unique and customized to meet their needs, there are common steps an agency can take to ensure its SMAP best addresses the jurisdiction’s speed management challenges and is supported by stakeholders. This document describes basic steps, or pieces, an agency might use to develop a SMAP; these suggestions are not exhaustive and agencies should choose the pieces that best ft their needs.
