Speed Management, Road Safety and Traffic Calming: Contradictions in the Policy Framework

The paper argues for a speed management framework within which physical traffic calming measures can be implemented. This challenged the traditional traffic hierarchy and traffic management concepts, which limited the achievement of safer and more livable environments. Unlike most traffic calming literature at the time, the paper argued for a speed management approach for the entire urban road network, including main traffic routes, and not just residential streets.

The paper can be viewed to the right.
