The Speed Management One-day Course reviews the relationship between speeding and fatalities as well as injury accidents. As part of the Course the Fatality Analysis Reporting System and the Query System are demonstrated and incorporated into fatal crash analysis to determine what works for reducing the crash rate. An important issue that is included in the course is how to establish a speed limit. The free online FHWA USLIMITS2 expert system for developing recommended speed limits for both urban and rural areas is demonstrated and incorporated in a class exercise. A series of lectures are given to establish a toolbox of techniques for reducing fatal and injury crashes. The class is presented with a problem and asked to establish their safety program.
When discussing the toolbox of safety techniques, the participants are presented with various traffic calming techniques. The techniques are discussed in terms of safety, speed, diversion, and cost effectiveness.
