Sammanfattning

During 2007 and 2008 the speed limits 40 och 60 km/h have been tried out in twelve Swedish cities, out of which six have participated in a evaluation in this project, financed by the Swedish National Road Administration. The evaluation has focused on effects from the changes in speed limits on actual speeds, safety, environment and travel times, as well as the attitudes towards the new speed limits. The speed reductions have been small, on average 1,6 km/h, but this still yields an expected reduction of almost 10% in number of casualties, the environmental impact is somewhat reduced but travel times are up about 5%.
