Lesson Learned

Deploy automated speed enforcement with dynamic "your speed" signs in work zones to heighten visual attention from drivers. In work zone speed enforcement scenarios using automated speed enforcement coupled with dynamic "your speed" signs, this study found that drivers fixated on a secondary task less frequently compared to other scenarios and heightened their visual attention to the work zones. Older drivers were also more compliant with the speed limit.
