Over the past year, GRSF has continued to take an active leadership role in speed management activities, including the production of global guidance, technical assistance, and research in this area. In addition, the Facility is working closely with governments around the world to support their efforts to adopt safer road infrastructure designs and to improve existing road networks to accommodate all road users. This work includes conducting assessments of high-risk roads; providing recommendations for safety improvements, and technical guidance on speed management; supporting the development and/or updating of national technical guides or norms; and supporting governments adopt crash data management systems.
