Speeding State of Knowledge

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) often prepares literature reviews on our behavioral safety topics. These State of Knowledge (SOK) reviews are critical for updating knowledge of an issue. They also serve as resources in traffic safety, including for other federal agencies, state governments, advocates, researchers, and the public. Many become significant reference documents.This will be NHTSA’s first SOK report on speeding and traffic safety. It is important that literature reviews comprehensively scan the literature, obtain and compile necessary documents, critically review documents, and objectively synthesize the research – drawing conclusions that allow a solid understanding of the topic and provide a basis for sound policy decisions. This State of Knowledge on Speeding report will do the same. This literature review will consist of an executive summary and multiple standalone chapters that cover various aspects of speeding behavior and traffic safety. The executive summary will include general statistics and encompass highlights of individual chapters.
