The study of possible racial profiling has been limited by few studies of actual citizen vehicular behavior. Field tests of 14 sites in which the speeds of approximately 7,000 vehicles were measured are analyzed to show the extent of variation in speeding across demographic groups and across geographic spaces. Results arae discussed in terms of the generalizability of the results across time and place.
