The Need for Speed Cameras… and Other Essential Tactics for Traffic Calming

Top European transportation officials in countries with significant progress towards Vision Zero - Germany, Sweden and the Netherlands - agree effective speed management is key to reducing traffic injuries and fatalities and improving street safety. Beyond simply managing speed, experts contend the need for speed differentials - limits set according to an area’s specific type and mix of road users.

This panel will discuss automated enforcement options, consider leading-edge technologies and explore the importance of combining initiatives with education and engineering approaches. Experts from cities including New York and Seattle will examine legislative efforts, public communication strategies and best practices for safety cameras and other tactics to save lives through better speed management and crash reduction.
