Austin Transportation Department is developing a new Speed Management Program to improve safety and enhance the livability of Austin streets through context-appropriate speed reduction strategies across the city. The objective of the program is to reduce the likelihood of serious injury and fatal crashes as well as reduce egregious speeding on all street levels.
Read more about the draft framework of the Speed Management Program and next steps in this memo to the Austin Mayor and City Council Members.
Austin Transportation is seeking input from the Austin community about the details of the measures and solutions to be included in the new Speed Management Program. This input will help the program achieve the best outcomes in improving the safety and livability of our streets.
