This paper describes how speeding continues to be one of the most significant safety issues on today’s roadways. Studies have demonstrated that increased compliance with properly established speed limits reduces crash incidence and severity. One of the outcomes of Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) technology is the development of practical tools that enable the traffic engineer to more effectively manage speed on their roadway system. The Dynamic Speed Monitoring Display (DSMD) sign is…

Evaluating Effectiveness of Dynamic Speed Display Signs in Transition Zones of Two-Lane, Rural Highways in Pennsylvania

Although law enforcement is an effective way to manage speeds, it requires significant resources to ensure adequate spatial and temporal compliance. In some cases, alternative speed management

Effect of Variable Message Sign on Driver Behaviour and Headways

Bearing in mind that different designs of vehicle activated signs can give a different impact under certain conditions of road, traffic and weather conditions the current work suggests that variable speed thresholds should be considered instead.

Improving Work Zone Safety through Speed Management

Safety hazards are increased in highway work zones as the dynamics of a work zone introduce a constantly changing environment with varying levels of risk. Excessive speeding through work and

Effectiveness of Speed Minders in Reducing Driving Speeds on Rural Highways in Pennsylvania

The objective of this project was to determine the effectiveness of dynamic speed display signs (also known as "speed minders") in reducing vehicle operating speeds. The Pennsylvania Department of

An Exploratory Study of Speed Limit Compliance in Missouri Work Zones

This study evaluated the speed compliance with the posted speed limit both quantitatively and qualitatively using objective and subjective data analysis. Free flow speed data for three work zones on

Evaluation of Work Zone Speed Limits: An Objective and Subjective Analysis of Work Zones in Missouri

This study objectively and subjectively examined speed characteristics and driver compliance with the posted speed limit in Missouri work zones. The objective evaluation collected vehicle speeds from

Investigation of Crashes and Identifying the Best Practices for Setting up Speed Zones in Towns Along Rural Highways in Nevada

Proper guidelines as well as enforcement is necessary to reduce crashes in the towns along the rural highways of Nevada to achieve “Zero Fatalities” in Nevada.

Use of DSFS as a Speed Transition Zone Countermeasure in Small, Rural Communities

Overall, the dynamic speed feedback signs were shown to be very effective in reducing vehicle speeds at community entrance, and large reductions were noted in most cases in the fraction of vehicles that were traveling significantly over the posted speed limit at the community entrance.

Design Guidance for High-Speed to Low-Speed Transition Zones for Rural Highways

This report presents guidance for designing the transition from a high-speed rural highway to a lower-speed section, typically approaching a small town. The report includes a methodology for

EVALUATION OF DYNAMIC SPEED DISPLAY SIGNS (DSDS)

Dynamic speed display signs (DSDS), devices that detect and display a vehicle's current speed back to the driver, have been shown to have a significant speed-reducing effect in temporary applications

Effectiveness of Speed-Monitoring Displays in Speed Reduction in School Zones

Speeding is one of the major causes of the frequent and severe traffic accidents that occur in school zones. Two field studies were conducted to assess the short-term and long-term effectiveness of

Long-Term Effectiveness of Speed Monitoring Displays in Work Zones on Rural Interstate Highways

The long-term effectiveness of speed monitoring displays (SMDs) was evaluated as part of the Midwest States Smart Work Zone Deployment Initiative, a pooled-fund study sponsored by Iowa, Kansas,

SYNTHESIS OF SAFETY RESEARCH RELATED TO SPEED AND SPEED MANAGEMENT

This report presents a synthesis of research findings on the safety effects of speed, speed limits, enforcement, and engineering measures to manage speed. The report is the update of research on

Influence of Exposure Duration on the Effectiveness of Changeable-Message Signs in Controlling Vehicle Speeds at Work Zones

In work zones, drivers do not slow down in response to conventional signs. Changeable-message signs (CMSs) equipped with a radar unit can be used to display specific warning messages to speeding

RADAR SPEED SIGNS ON NEIGHBORHOOD STREETS: AN EFFECTIVE TRAFFIC CALMING DEVICE?

How local jurisdictions frequently respond to public concerns about speeding on neighborhood streets is described, including the installation and maintenance of a mobile radar speed display unit, and conclusions as to whether or not these signs have been successful in calming neighborhood traffic.
