Trees and Speed

During the tree planting season I am often asked by members of the public 
what reasons I have for planting trees in their street, outside their house 
and in the way of their view.
My reasons are usually, to create a more attractive landscape, to improve the 
quality of air and to reduce the speed of traffic using that particular 
stretch of highway.
I have access to research notes on the first two points, but with regard to 
the last point, (speed reduction), I am unable to find any relating research 
notes.
I would appreciate it if anyone out there could help me out on this one.
Thanks in advance, Chris.
