Speeding is not a victimless crime

Why do drivers speed?

Why do we accept speeding as OK?

Why do some drivers think its OK to tailgate other drivers who stay within the speed limit?

What happens when drivers speed?

Government statistics for 2017 show ‘exceeding speed limit’ as a contributory factor in 203 road deaths and 1,212 serious injuries.

In addition, ‘travelling too fast for conditions’ was a factor in 136 fatalities and 1,327 serious injuries.

Every day a driver who is exceeding the speed limit or travelling too fast for the conditions will kill another person.

If your getting stressed looking out for mobile speed cameras, getting irritated having to slow down for static cameras, or getting really annoyed at drivers in front going too slowly then I have two top tips to avoid getting done for speeding.

  1. Take public transport

  2. Drive within the speed limit and always at an appropriate speed

Road Safety GB is an organisation which has a lot of information and advice about road safety. Their website is well worth a visit.
