  • Speed limiters for vans in Europe: Environmental and safety impacts

    The limitation of top speeds of vans is a measure to reduce CO2 emissions. This is already done with new trucks since the beginning of the nineties, and can be applied quickly, easily and without significant additional technology costs.

    This study uses an approach that differs from other studies on speed limiters for vans on some aspects. The most important choices and differences with respect to the analysis of effects are:

    • This study includes benefits of less speeding on rural roads.
    • This study uses intrinsic risks as a rule for allocation of victims to vans.
