The State government plans to lower speed limits on beaches to improve safety.

Extensive public consultation showed overwhelming support for reducing the default speed limit, currently 100 km/h.

South Australians preferred a default limit of 40 km/h, with 25 km/h near pedestrians.

Stakeholders like National Parks and Wildlife and the South Australian Coastal Councils Alliance also backed this.

The Department for Infrastructure and Transport recently approved lower limits for some beaches. A final decision on the new default beach speed limit will be made by the end of 2023, considering all feedback.
