Background information and definitions
Speed limits in areas with high traffic and high primate densities may help prevent vehicle collisions with primates and also to reduce stress levels in primates. Furthermore, primates may be able to cross roads more easily in areas where speed limits are enforced compared to areas with no traffic regulations. To effectively enforce existing speed limits it can help if fines are imposed for breaking the speed limit and/or for colliding with primates.
Implementing and enforcing speed limits is discussed under ‘Implement speed limits in particular areas (e.g. with high primate densities) to reduce vehicle collisions with primates’.
