I think you will find my ITE Drop-In Session on May 11 dealing with Driver Psychology and Speed Management informative as the foundation of better design to limit speeds, as Ms Draisin has mentioned.
This will get you to the list of Drop In Sessions:

Hi everybody. Its Rod King of 20's Plenty for Us in the UK. Spain has just set a national urban default limit of 30km/h and Wales is setting a national urban default of 20mph. You can hear speakers from Spanish and Welsh governments, and WHO at our webinar on Thursday 14:30 BST. Hear how "social engineering" can be used as a powerful tool for normalising 20mph/30kmh speeds to reset how we view acceptable speed on roads. Hear how a population-wide approach can be more cost effective than isolated interventions.Find out more at www.20splenty.org/webinar

Great webinar. A development in the U.S. is that IIHS, GHSA and the National Road Safety Foundation are funding grants to Virginia and Maryland this year to develop speed management programs. Both will involve engineering changes, education and enforcement. The idea is that these projects, if effective, could serve as a model for other communities.
Just a reminder- this is a deep diver webinar and we will going until 3:30 Eastern
