Speed-related Crash Typology

Over thirty percent of all fatal crashes are estimated to be speeding-related crashes, defined as racing, exceeding the speed limit, or driving too fast for conditions. In order to better understand the speeding issue, the goal of this study is to create a speed-related crash taxonomy, similar to the crash types developed for pedestrian and bicycle crashes. This effort will assist in targeting speed-related crash reduction countermeasures and development of new countermeasure strategies.
