Culture of Speed and Road Safety

Critiques of road safety policies suggest the need for a wider cultural change than is found in public education campaigns to change community attitudes to speeding. The research investigates the ways in which speeding, and personal mobility in general, are connected to personal arrangements around social connectedness, quality of life and slower ways of being. The research identifies the importance of framing road safety within a broader social-cultural perspective around personal mobility rather than a traditional engineering infrastructure and vehicle lens.
