Objective

The overall project objective is to contribute to improved road traffic safety by giving answers to the questions: How efficient is the use of road speed management methods based on information technology (ISA) in comparison with traditional means? How will the road users across Europe react to such development? What are suitable strategies for implementation and what obstacles have to be overcome?

This objective will be achieved through the following project goals:
- Assess user reactions to different types of road speed management methods and implementation strategies across the European regions, and evaluate implementation strategies for different types of speed management methods, taking into account user acceptance and technical, legal and policy aspects
- Assess traffic safety effects, cost-effectiveness and the overall cost-benefit of speed management methods, and benchmark ISA against other speed management methods.
