This year’s Road Safety Week will explore the subject of speeding and how driving slower can save lives among business and private drivers.
With Covid now (hopefully) firmly in the rear view mirror, UK drivers have returned to the roads. Our daily commute is again subject to rush hour frustrations and bad driving is as prevalent now as it was pre-pandemic.
The Department for Transport released its annual ‘Vehicle Speed Compliance Statistics for Great Britain: 2022’ in August this year. Vehicle speed compliance statistics for Great Britain: 2022 - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)
A few of the headlines from the statistics:
The statistics showed that poorest compliance with the speed limit is found on roads subject to a 30mph limit where the most vulnerable road users and pedestrians are most prevalent. Our inability to comply with the slowest speed limits emphasises society’s increasing impatience on the road.
