Speed is a contributory factor in the most serious road crashes and casualties. Driving is unpredictable and if something unexpected happens on the road ahead, it is a driver’s speed that will determine whether they can stop in time, and if they can’t stop, the impact speed.
The greater the impact speed, the greater the chance of death to a person or persons. A pedestrian hit at 30mph has a one in five chance of being killed. This rises significantly to a one in three chance if they are hit at 35mph.
Do you know the speed limits for certain vehicles on certain roads? Do you know the speed of the national speed on single roads, duel carriageways and motorways? Would you know if you were driving on a duel carriageway or a single road?
