A study was undertaken to review the role of vehicle speed in road crashes, speed limits, enforcement and behaviour, and the environment. A review of the international literature was initially carried out to highlight overseas findings and issues identified for further research and development. Visits were also made to a select number of overseas research and government agencies in Scandinavia, Europe and the United States to gain first hand knowledge of problems and research being undertaken in these countries. A meeting was then organised of 45 Australian experts with research, government authority, and motoring backgrounds, as well as a keynote speaker from Sweden, to identify current problems and issues in Australia.
