A Speed Management System integrates, centralises, manages, and organises multiple systems, including speed cameras, electronic speed limit signs, and speed bumps. Speed cameras are used to detect the speed of vehicles on the road and can be either stationary or mobile. Electronic speed limit signs display the current speed limit and can be adjusted to reflect changing road conditions or traffic patterns. Speed bumps are physical barriers on the road designed to slow traffic.
Is a type of traffic management system that regulates the speed of vehicles on a particular road or section of road. The main objective of such a system is to improve traffic safety and reduce the number of accidents that occur due to speeding.
Often used in urban areas where there is a high volume of traffic and a greater risk of accidents. By regulating the speed of vehicles on the road, these systems can help prevent accidents and improve overall traffic safety.

Manage speed wisely
Speed management is the key to road safety and is a critical element of the safe system concept because reducing traffic speeds and speed-related crashes and fatalities remains a complex challenge. Speeding is a safety issue, and speed feedback signs encourage drivers to obey posted speed limits and warnings. Many factors contribute to drivers speeding, but drivers' beliefs and attitudes play an important role in their driving behavior and cultural acceptance of speeding.
Creating a positive traffic safety culture is critical to addressing speeding as a safety issue. The elements of "safe speeds" and "safe streets" are of particular importance in developing a successful speed management program and advancing speed management for safety.
The application of safe speeds reduces crash forces, increases visibility, and shortens stopping distances. It outlines how to set safe, consistent, and enforceable speed limits based on the presence of all road users and context, not just drivers' operating speeds.
Establishing a speed management system is one of the critical first steps in developing and implementing a citywide strategic speed management program with comprehensive speed management activities, established key performance indicators, goal achievement metrics, and integrated efforts including enforcement. Establish safe, uniform, and enforceable speed limits for all road users in rural and urban areas.
