Setting Safe Speed Limits

Coming Soon: A Practitioner’s Guide to Speed Limit Setting

NACTO’s upcoming guidance will give practitioners a detailed, context-sensitive method to set safe speed limits on urban streets. Using the safe systems approach, the guidance provides a consistent, rational, scalable approach to urban speed limit setting, from citywide strategies to corridor-by-corridor methods based on easy-to-study street characteristics.

The National Traffic Safety Board (NTSB) has recommended an overhaul of how speed is managed on U.S. streets, including the way that speed limits are set. Answering this call, NACTO’s upcoming guidance, based on best practices from a wide diversity of municipalities across North America, will give practitioners the specific methods—at the level of an entire city or a single street— needed to set safe speed limits on streets.
