Our Top Tip Tuesday regards speed, and why sometimes, it's "30 for a reason" http://think.direct.gov.uk/speed.html

The difference of a few miles per hour can mean the difference between life and death. The faster someone is driving, the less time they have to stop if something unexpected happens.

If you kill someone while speeding, you will have to live with the long-term emotional consequences.

Speed limits are there for a reason.

The facts

  • Speed is one of the main factors in fatal road accidents
  • In 2013, 3,064 people were killed or seriously injured in crashes where speed was a factor
  • The risk of death is approximately four times higher when a pedestrian is hit at 40mph than at 30mph
  • Fatal accidents are four times as likely on rural A roads as urban A roads
