Analysis of SHRP2 Speeding Data

Studying speeding behavior poses many challenges. Much of the existing knowledge on speeding has been developed through small observational studies, traffic records data, and self-report surveys. Technology is now providing new insights on speeding behavior through naturalistic driving studies, which allow researchers to collect data on driving behavior from drivers as they engage in their normal day-to-day driving. The largest naturalistic driving study, to date, is the Strategic Highway Research Program 2 (SHRP2). The SHRP2 project is generating a very large and unique data set that will provide information on many aspects of traffic safety, including speeding. This study is an initial exploration of the SHRP2 data with regard to speeding. The research team will address the following five target research questions on speeding-related behavior: (1) What is the relationship between speeding and crashes (and near crashes)? (2) How do seasonal changes affect speeding and crashes (and near crashes)? (3) How does time of day (daylight / nighttime) affect speeding and crashes (and near crashes)? (4) Do demographic differences affect speeding and crashes (and near crashes)? (5) How do speeding and crashes (and near crashes) vary with regard to speed limit and road type?
