Inappropriate or excessive speed is a major cause of road trauma. Effective speed management is fundamental and critical to solving this issue. Most of the current guidance is focused on the analytical aspects of speed management and setting speed limits. However, critical to the success of any speed management project is effective engagement and consultation with stakeholders and the community. Currently there is little guidance on this important part of the process and as such, it is often overlooked by practitioners. This paper identifies good practice guidance for engagement and consultation to effectively implement speed management interventions.
