The analysis of implementation possibilities of sectorial automated vehicle speed control systems on the roads of Lithuania

DOI: 10.3846/bjrbe.2014.17
 
Excess speed is one of the largest road safety problems causing the increased risk of road crashes. A wide range of safety improvement measures, both educational and engineering, are being implemented to solve this problem. The main objective of those measures is to force vehicle drivers to observe the speed limit requirements and to ensure enforcement of speed requirements. This paper gives an overview of the impact of vehicle speeds on road safety and the effect of safety improvement measures. Possibilities for the implementation of sectorial vehicle speed enforcement system on the roads of national significance of Lithuania are presented. The paper contains criteria for the selection of road sections of Lithuania where the sectorial vehicle speed enforcement system could be installed. The amount of investments is also given necessary for the installation of sectorial vehicle speed enforcement system on the selected road sections as well as their one-year maintenance. Taking into consideration the damage incurred by the country due the people killed on roads a pay-back period of the sectorial vehicle speed enforcement system is determined.
 
Keywords: vehicle speed, sectorial vehicle speed enforcement, expected number of accidents.
