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
