Presentation and discussion about the safety, health and sustainability benefits associated with vehicle speed limits led by Lisa Kons, traffic programs manager for the Minnesota Safety Council.

Reducing vehicle speeds is the easiest and most immediate way to improve safety. It protects anyone on the street, and it protects the driver from the emotional, legal and financial impact of hitting someone.

Kons will address what determines safety on roadways and how road design contributes to overall community health, a pillar of social equity and sustainability. Roadway safety also has a positive effect on the environment, contributes to ongoing transportation planning, and encourages multiple travel modes.

The DMC Sustainability Series is a partnership with the U.S. Green Building Council. This presentation is free to view.
