The aim of the present study is to report the changes between the years 2015 and 2016 concerning driver speed levels and speed limit compliance on the main municipality streets. The year 2012 was the starting year for the measurement series, and in 2016 a fourth follow-up was performed. Only the main municipality streets with speed limits between 40 km/h and 70 km/h were included. The measurements were made during the month of September in 23 different municipalities in Sweden.

The results show that in 2016 the space-mean-speed for all vehicles on the main municipality roads was 47 km/h. With respect to speed violations, overall, 67 per cent of drivers obeyed the speed limit 2016. The lowest speed limit compliance was found on roads with a speed limit of 40 km/h, where only 53 per cent of the traffic obeyed the speed limit; 68 per cent obeyed the speed limit on 50 km/h roads, 72 per cent on 60 km/h roads, and 78 per cent on 70 km/h roads.
