How fast are you driving?

Posted on August 30th, 2016 by GEM Motoring Assist

The faster you go the longer it takes you to stop – FACT.

In 2014 travelling at excess or inappropriate speeds for the conditions was recorded as a factor in 24% of fatal road traffic collisions and 13% of serious injury collisions; that’s 2,772 people killed or seriously injured (DfT: Reported Road Casualties Great Britain Annual Report 2014).

Speed limits were introduced to keep people safe on the roads and are there for a reason. Driving within the limit and to the conditions reduces the risk of a collision occurring in the first place and serious injury to you or anyone else if the worst does happen and you are involved in a crash. Remember it’s a limit and not a target.
