    These programs are intended to complement and support current methods of speed control which emphasize speed limits, enforcement, and public information and education. Separately, traffic calming and enforcement tend to be most appropriate for different kinds of situations. The approaches can work together, however, with an integrated approach combining PI&E, enforcement, and engineering as appropriate to make it more certain that the desired effects will be achieved. NHTSA, with its long history of support for pedestrian safety and for speed control, should be a critical supporter of efforts to bring traffic calming and other such tools into the battle.

  • At the other end are approaches specifically intended to increase safety for pedestrians and other non-motorists and, in many areas, to improve the ambience for residents. These approaches usually include permanent engineering changes to roadways which require slower traffic speeds. The changes can be dramatic and very significantly reduce pedestrian and vehicle crashes. Perhaps more than enforcement does, though, they depend on public understanding, planning involvement, and approval for their success.

    N is used almost everywhere in the world. M is used initially when departing oceanic airspace, such as airports in Iceland, Greenland, Bermuda, and the Bahamas. The flight plan is changed to Mach as the cruise speed over the first waypoint in Oceanic airspace and back to N when leaving oceanic airspace.

Vaa (1997) reported on a study of police enforcement on a 35-km segment of two-lane road with speed limits of 60 - 80 km/h. The police developed their own schedule of enforcement, emphasizing irregular timing and placement of enforcement locations and ultimately averaging about 40 hours/week for six weeks. Speeds were reduced by up to 5 km/h based on week and time of day, significant in all time periods. Percentages of speeding drivers also declined, with only morning rush hour speeds not significantly decreased. The effects lasted for up to eight weeks. A subsequent study was done to identify the minimum level of enforcement that would achieve comparable speed reductions (Vaa et al., 1995).
