Speed

Speedometer

Drivers and riders who are travelling at inappropriate speeds are more likely to crash and their higher speed means that the crash will cause more severe injuries, to themselves and/or to other road users. Inappropriate speed also magnifies other driver errors, such as driving too close or driving when tired or distracted, multiplying the chances of these types of driving causing an accident. Our resources offer advice and information to help drivers to drive at safe and appropriate speeds.

In 2015, 222 people were killed in crashes involving someone exceeding the speed limit and a further 167 people died when someone was travelling too fast for the conditions.
