Speed

Speed is the biggest contributing factor to injury and fatality crashes on New South Wales roads.

About 20% of injury and fatality crashes in Federation Council involve speed. Under the Local Government Road Safety Program, Federation Council applies for funding each year to work with the community to combat speed and reduce the number of crashes where speed is a contributing factor.

Federation Council's Road Safety Action Plan identifies the area of speed as a concern for many of our residents and is a priority area when applying for funding and educating the community.

More information is available at Transport for NSW Centre for Road Safety.

When travelling in a residential street the speed limit is 50km/h unless signposted otherwise.

It is important to always consider the environment in which you are travelling and adjust your speed accordingly. More congested areas require you to travel at a lower speed.
