Speeding is a key road safety problem in numerous countries worldwide. Speed management aims to achieve appropriate speeds on all parts of the road network and can lead to fast and significant progress in reducing road deaths. In Greece, speed infringements are by far the most common infringement of the Highway Code. The continuous upgrade of the road network of the Peloponnese supports the development of higher speeds in this area. The objective of this paper is the comprehensive proposal of a speed management strategy which can contribute to the overall improvement of road safety in the Peloponnese region in Greece. The specific proposal covers all the main components of the speed management strategy, namely objectives, action areas, stakeholders and partners, time-schedule and resources, synergies with other policy areas, monitoring and reporting procedure and sustainability issues.
