Jurisdiction Speed Management Action Plan Development Package

Abstract:

The Jurisdiction Speed Management Action Plan Development Package includes four separate resources: 1) a Speed Management Action Plan Template, developed to provide a model for State and local agencies to use in developing jurisdiction-specific speed management safety action plans; 2) a Speed Management Toolkit document, which includes a comprehensive speed management bibliography, tables of speed management countermeasures with expected crash or speed effects; and tip sheets for communications programs; 3) the Speed Management Action Plan for Randolph County, an example of a local jurisdiction action plan; and 4) Alabama Speed Management Action Plan, an example of a statewide action plan. The plan template guides the user to develop particular actions, safety goals and a plan for countermeasures implementation through a systematic process, as well as to address larger speed management issues that often limit program effectiveness and durability. The Toolkit provides information on countermeasures effects and other resources. The other documents provide more information and examples to help local agencies develop their own action plans.
