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.
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
Consider the consequences of causing an accident due to driving at excessive speed. If you cause an accident you will have to live with the emotional consequences of deaths or injuries caused to others.
You must not drive faster than the speed limit for the type of road and your type of vehicle. The speed limit is the absolute maximum and it doesn’t mean it's safe to drive at this speed in all conditions.
✓ The speed limit is a limit not a target. ✓ Country roads often have sharp bends. Stay in control and give yourself time to react to unexpected hazards by braking before the bend, not in it. ✓ Driving too fast for the conditions is bad driving. ✓ Consider the consequences of causing an accident due to driving at excessive speed.
