The Speed Management Techniques and Applications Course is designed to provide participants with the knowledge and principles for applying various techniques for countering speeding and speed related crashes.  The first sections of the course review the Fatality Analysis Reporting System as well as other sources of crash data.  Methods for identifying potential hazardous areas related to crashes involving roadway departures, intersections, and bicycle and pedestrians are demonstrated.

A portion of the course is devoted to discuss and demonstrate methods for determining appropriate design and posted speeds.  The application of USLIMTS2 software is presented to the class for developing posted speed limit recommendations. 

The course also reviews various speed reduction techniques that are applicable to rural and urban areas and reviews their effectiveness.  The countermeasures are categorized into three types of speed related crashes: 1. Road Departures; 2. Intersections; 3. Pedestrians & Bicyclists.   The class is asked to apply the appropriate techniques to a series of case studies.
