Texas Strategic Highway Safety Plan
Injury severity of crashes increase as speed increases.
Improve the effectiveness of educational techniques, tools, and strategies for speeding (target specific age groups).
Countermeasures for strategy 5 were identified in the following categories.
Revisit driver education courses, including parent-taught program design; document the benefits of certified instructor training; and enhance ticket dismissal courses, particularly with regard to speed choice and speeding.
Educate the public on the difference between the posted speed limit, speed design, and safe driving speed.
