The travel speeds selected and trusted by the driver vary according to his behavior and the surrounding environment. Accordingly, this paper studies the change of the free-flow speed, influences on it, of the route linking Al-Bayaa and Bab Almudam sectors. A GPS device was used to collect data during 60 rounds for three periods (morning, day, and night), 50 of them during the off-peak time and 10 during peak time with drivers of both genders and different ages. The results showed a variation of the FFS values at off-evening peak time, also noting the posted speed limits corresponding to the statistically calculated 85, which was 69kmhr. along the route. The emergence of a significant impact of the security checkpoints in link 3, causing a general defect in the traffic accounts. Also, there was an increase in the speed with an increase in lane width by 13% and a decrease in the speed with an increase in the number of lanes by 45.18% and 18.6% between 2 and 4 lanes and 2 and 3 lanes respectively. It should be noted that male is bolder and more reckless in choosing speeds by 26.32% than female and that groups of 50 and below years old choose less speed by 13.52% of ages 35 and below years old who are more confident and familiar in dealing with roads and choosing the appropriate speed.
