Speed management is a core principle of Safe Systems—a holistic view of safety recognizing that road users will make safety-critical errors, but that those events should not result in death. Although professionals consider environment, vehicle, and road user factors to reduce speeding, knowledge about human factors is underutilized. Incorporating human factors into speed management practices can reduce inherent road user misjudgment as well as the elevated levels of kinetic energy created by speeding.
