  1. 1. Planning and Transport Research PATREC Centre Engineers Australia Seminar – 16 November 2009 TARGETING THE SPEED LIMITS Is there a case for lowering speed limits? Professor Greg Martin PSM Executive Director © Planning and Transport Research Centre www.patrec.org
  2. 2. Planning and Transport Research PATREC Centre A Rationale • National policy drivers • ‘Safe System’ approach • Development of practice • The responsible custodian © Planning and Transport Research Centre www.patrec.org 2
  3. 3. Planning and Transport Research PATREC Centre National Policy Drivers • Population – growth, congestion • Productivity – network use, traffic management • Resource efficiency – user pays • Safety – speed management © Planning and Transport Research Centre www.patrec.org 3
  4. 4. Planning and Transport Research PATREC Centre The Big Picture • Technical practice view – Engineering, education and enforcement • ‘Safe System’ view – Vehicle, speed , environment • Public policy view – Access rights, public safety, responsible custodian © Planning and Transport Research Centre www.patrec.org 4
  5. 5. Planning and Transport Research PATREC Centre An Influence Strategy • Information – availability, educative • Engagement – interactive, monitor perceptions • Knowledge – build understanding of personal and community impacts • Culture – attitudes, community standards, acceptability of crashes © Planning and Transport Research Centre www.patrec.org 5
  6. 6. Planning and Transport Research PATREC Centre Who is the custodian? • Road authorities are the custodians of the system – own the asset, manage its use • Need to condition drivers and the community with; – Rationale of ‘speed management’ – Road environment, infrastructure, road sides – Population perspective on errant behaviour – Enforcement to reinforce community standards © Planning and Transport Research Centre www.patrec.org 6
  7. 7. Planning and Transport Research PATREC Centre My Answers • Yes, but only if no responsible alternative • Efficient traffic flow is a legitimate expectation - in the big picture! • Yes – we are capturing this knowledge – issue is how to share it ‘outside the club’! • It must be the community insisting on a safer future! © Planning and Transport Research Centre www.patrec.org 7
