Project Details

Project Description

The aim of this project is to address the following:
(1) To evaluate the effectiveness of reducing the speed limit to 40 km/h across all roads and areas where it has been implemented (excluding school zones), to determine in which environments and for which times of operation (full-time vs different hours of operation) it is most effective in reducing crashes.
(2) To investigate community attitudes towards 40 km/h speed zones.
