SA may look at 30kph speed limits South Australia's road safety thinker-in-residence says cutting urban speed limits to 30 kilometres per hour on some roads may be warranted. Professor Fred Wegman has just arrived in Adelaide from the Netherlands where he is the managing director of the Institute for Road Safety Research. The road toll in the Netherlands is about 40 per cent lower than in South Australia's.** Professor Wegman says he will consider a range of road safety measures for SA, including current speed limits. SA Road Safety Minister Jack Snelling says Professor Wegman's expertise is welcome. Professor Wegman will be in Adelaide for one month and will return before the end of the year to present his recommendations. Original story... **In 2003 (the last year the Netherlands records are available) they were the same as Australia on 0.8 deaths per 100 million kilometres. The only real comparison. I wonder exactly what he has to offer given the totally disparate nature of roads and traffic.
