Fundamentals of Automated Speed Enforcement
October 14 – 22, 2020 | 8 Professional Development Hours

Speed enforcement aims to prevent drivers exceeding the speed limit by penalizing those who do. This not only affects the speed violators who actually get caught (specific deterrence), but also those who see or hear that others get caught (general deterrence). With excessive or inappropriate speed contributing to 1 in 3 road traffic fatalities worldwide, measures to address speed remains one of the most effective pathways for countries and cities to reach their traffic injury reduction goals. Without a strong, sustained public commitment to robust enforcement of speeds on the network by government, speed management programs are unlikely to be effective.
