Slow Down | RRSAW 2023

“Slow down” is the good advice, but it is not always the appropriate response to speeding. There is more that can be done to promote safe speeds on rural roads.

Speed countermeasures build an environment that results in slower speeds. Rumble strips, road diets, roundabouts, and speed feedback signs are common examples of proven safety countermeasures that make rural roads incredibly safer.

Our third destination introduces speed countermeasures, their costs, and why practitioners should consider them for their local roads.
