SPEED YEARBOOK

To study one of the factors that can lead to accidents due to run-off crashes, Ascendi has started promoting an annual diagnosis of the main speed indicators based on the data recorded by the equipment installed for automatic vehicle counting.
To process and analyze this information, a partnership was established with the Instituto da Construção of the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto (IC-FEUP), which produced the Speed Yearbook characterizing the behavior of drivers in terms of actual speeds practiced.
In this edition, the Speed Yearbook 2022, the data collected throughout the year 2022 is analyzed, compared with the indicators from the previous year, and are presented new speed indicators for vehicle types, at the concessions and the network level.
