Title: Reducing Speeding in Europe (PIN Flash 36)
Organisation: ETSC (European Transport Safety Council)
Date uploaded: 7th March 2019

The report looks at the number of vehicles found to be driving above the speed limit on different road types across Europe.
On urban roads, where 37% of all EU road deaths occur, between 35% and 75% of ‘vehicle speed observations’ were higher than the legal speed.
On rural non-motorway roads, the figure stands between 9% and 63%, while on motorways, where 8% of all road deaths in the EU occur, it is between 23% and 59%.
The report says that reducing speeding will require a combination of measures – including higher levels of enforcement, improved infrastructure and credible speed limits.
However, it singles out Intelligent Speed Assistance (ISA) as the ‘key in-vehicle safety measure’.
