Resolution 11 of the Stockholm road safety declaration 2020 reads: ‘Focus on speed management, including the strengthening of law enforcement to prevent speeding and mandate a maximum road travel speed of 30 km/h (or 20 mph) in areas where vulnerable road users and vehicles mix in a frequent and planned manner’. This resolution, when carried out, will have major implications on how we design and use the urban environment, and will certainly lead to more and larger Low Speed Zones that have already been credited with improved road safety, fewer cars, less traffic noise, and lower emissions, more pedestrian and cycling traffic and better connectivity between neighborhoods.
Convened by the IRF Road Safety Committee as part of a new taskforce linked to speed management & enforcement, this webinar is designed to take stock of successful approaches and persisting challenges linked to designing and enforcing Low Speed Zones and other urban speed reduction programs in the Dutch city of Amsterdam.
