Using telematics data to inform road safety practice

This presentation will describe a new project funded by the Road Safety Trust exploring how very granular telematics speed data can be used to inform road safety practices, from speed enforcement undertaken by the police and in partnership with local community groups, through to road safety engineering and education.

The project will provide a speed data platform where telematics speed data will be available for the West Midlands region, and will also develop and trial guidance documents and standard operating procedures.
