This report examines the possible safety benefits from driving in a manner that results in lower fuel consumption and emissions. It attempts to assess the potential of promoting additional motivations to drive safely -better fuel economy and other environmental outcomes, and reduced running costs. Reducing speeding, lower speed limits and modifying driving style were found to improve fuel economy and other environmental outcomes in addition to improving safety. Programs such as these that… 

Economic Analysis of Onboard Monitoring Systems in Commercial Vehicles

Onboard monitoring systems (OBMSs) can be used in commercial vehicle operations to monitor driving behavior, with the goal of enhancing safety. Although improved safety produces an economic benefit

SAFETY IMPACTS AND OTHER IMPLICATIONS OF RAISED SPEED LIMITS ON HIGH-SPEED ROADS

This report describes the analyses performed and results obtained by a study of safety and other impacts of speed limit changes on high-speed roads. The information will be valuable for researchers

Design and development of an in-vehicle human machineinterface to improve fuel efficiency & safety

Road transport plays a significant role in various industries and mobility services around the globe and has a vital impact on our daily lives. However it also has serious impacts on both public

Research issues in Eco-driving

Transport is a key economic sector, supporting economic development and growth, and facilitating exchange. At the same time, motor vehicles are major emitters of gaseous and particulate pollution in

Effect of Using an In-Vehicle Smart Driving Aid on Real-World Driver Performance

It is shown that an in-vehicle smart driving system specifically developed and designed with the drivers' information requirements in mind can lead to significant improvements in driving behaviors in the real world on real roads with real users.

Safety Impacts and Other Implications of Raised Speed Limits on High-Speed Roads

This report describes the analyses performed and results obtained by a study of safety and other impacts of speed limit changes on high-speed roads. Safety-related analyses were based on a

THE IMPACT OF LOWERED SPEED LIMITS IN URBAN AND METROPOLITAN AREAS

The majority of all traffic accidents occur in the urban environment, where there is a more complex traffic environment and a higher predominance of road users that are more susceptible to injury and

IMPACT OF ECODRIVING ON EMISSIONS AND FUEL CONSUMPTION

This pre-study is designed to determine whether EcoDriving has any negative impact on emissions and to identify what needs to be changed in the concept to minimize emissions and fuel consumption. In

REDUCING THE ENVIRONMENT IMPACT OF DRIVING - EFFECTIVENESS OF DRIVER TRAINING

Driver behaviour is critical in determining the fuel consumption, noise and exhaust emission rates during a trip. This paper summarises the findings of a study of the evidence that driver training

LOWER URBAN SPEED LIMITS: TRADING OFF SAFETY, MOBILITY AND ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT

Lower urban speed limits (LUSL) are being applied to residential areas in many jurisdictions in Australia including parts of Adelaide, South East Queensland, areas of New South Wales and, more

ROAD SAFETY AND ECOLOGICAL SUSTAINABILITY WORKING TOGETHER

In recent years, Queensland has made significant reductions in its road toll. These road safety successes can be attributed, in a major way, to Queensland's integrated approach to road safety

THE EFFECTS OF DRIVERS' SPEED ON THE FREQUENCY OF ROAD ACCIDENTS

TRL has undertaken a major programme of research for the Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions (DETR) to investigate the impact of traffic speed on the frequency of road accidents.

THE NEW DRIVING FORCE

'The New Driving Force', the former 'Buy eco-wise, Drive eco-nice' programme, which aims to change the attitudes and actions of various target groups by encouraging them to buy and use cars, delivery vans, lorries and buses in a more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly way, is introduced.

Estimation of the optimum speed on urban residential streets

The optimum speed is defined as one which balances the social costs and benefits of increased travel time with decreased road trauma, vehicle operating costs, emissions, etc. Three different methods
