  • ETSC's Speed Fact Sheet 5 - Section Control 

As part of its Speed Programme, ETSC has published its fifth Speed Fact Sheet: Section Control. Section Control is a method for enforcing speed limits calculating the average speed of vehicles by dividing the time taken to travel through two points by the distance between them. There are a growing number of cases documenting reductions in mean speeds and consequently reductions in collisions and casualties thanks to Section Control. Some indications also confirm the expectation that this method can benefit from higher public acceptance compared to more traditional speed camera enforcement.

  • PRAISE Report 1 - In-Vehicle Safety equipment for work-related road safety

The report looks at the business case for investing in road safety at work, examines the most important technologies, gives examples of their use and recommends next steps for the EU, Member Sate governments and employers.
