Speeding

Road speed limits are used to set the legal maximum at which vehicles may travel on a given stretch of road. Exceeding the speed limit highly increases the likelihood of an accident and is one of the main causes of road crashes. Very strong relationships have been established between speed and accident risk.

When drivers are speeding, they have less time to react to any danger or other situations on the road.

Furthermore, when a road accident actually occurs, the greater the speed, the more likely that death or serious injuries will follow.
