Legislate and enforce stricter speeding regulations by operational and technical means to reduce emissions and road crashes

2 E 3 .001

Introducing lower speed limits on motorways and urban roads can lead to significant reductions in road accident deaths and also reduce fuel consumption, noise pollution, CO2 and air pollutant emissions. The magnitude of reductions depends on a number of factors including vehicle fleet composition, technologies deployed, driving behavior, frequency and magnitude of speeding, congestion, and traffic diversion due to reduced speed.
