Traffic data can provide valuable insight into road user behaviour, traffic patterns, and the effectiveness of existing road safety measures. By gathering and analysing traffic data, we can identify where accidents are more likely to occur and take preventative steps, such as improving road design, implementing or adjusting posted speed limits, and introducing speed control devices, such as speed bumps or roundabouts.
Collecting traffic data can also help measure the effectiveness of road safety initiatives over time, allowing authorities to make data-driven decisions about where to allocate resources and future road safety projects.
