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

About 29% of serious injury and fatality crashes in Federation Council involve speed.

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. This is commonly referred to as “driving to the conditions”.
