Travel Speed

Travel speeds greatly influence the chance of surviving a crash, whatever the cause of the collision.

Ensuring that speed limits are appropriate for the standard of the roads and vehicles, and creating environments which support lower travel speeds are important steps in reducing the number of serious crashes.

WALGA RoadWise has a number of tools and resources available which can assist Local Governments with implementing local projects targeting safe speeds. Please follow the links below for further details:

In addition to the above initiatives, RoadWise have developed the Safe System Approach – I Can posters and a Local Safe Speed Initiatives Kit. These resources aim to provide practical safe speed related actions and initiatives which Local Governments can implement in their communities.
