SPEED AND ROAD SAFETY:
Speeding continues to be major factor in road crashes, so slow down and save lives!
BE AWARE OF THE FACTS ABOUT SPEEDING!
CHOOSE A SAFE SPEED FOR THE CONDITIONS:
Speed limits are the maximum travel speed for any road. In many conditions, you should travel at a lower speed-such as in bad weather, after dark, in heavy traffic, on unfamiliar, winding or narrow roads.
REMEMBER TO CHOOSE A SAFE SPEED FOR THE DRIVING CONDITIONS
SPEEDING INCREASE CRASHES:
You are more likely to crash if you exceed the speed limit or drive at a speed that is not appropriate for the conditions.
As your speed increases, you have a less time to react to emergencies and it takes a greater distance to stop. Other road users also find it more difficult to judge how fast you are traveling.
