Abstract [en]

The problem of deteriorating road safety - marked by growing speed limitviolations and increasing number of road accidents - was the reason for theinstallation of speed-monitoring radar cameras at a number of strategicroadway locations in Kuwait in 1995. During the first months following theinstallation drivers' observation and respect for speed limits, especially inthe vicinity of the radar cameras were obvious. Mean traffic speeds at thesesites were significantly below those measured before the installation. Due tolack of enforcement of the speed violators, drivers' respect for the radarcameras has gradually diminished during subsequent years. Recent measurementsindicate that driver' respect for the speed limits have decreased even atcamera sites. Statistical tests confirm the measurements. Increasedenforcement of speed limits in the vicinity of the radar cameras is stronglyrecommended.
