People speed for a number of reasons:
- because they are in a rush to get somewhere,
- because they are unaware of the speed limit,
- because they enjoy driving fast,
and for many more reasons besides. But there’s no excuse for speeding – it’s a major factor in many road crashes, and the faster a vehicle is travelling, the greater the amount of energy transferred in a crash, and the higher the likelihood of serious injury or death.
