Speeding – Driving School in Melbourne Alerts

Speeding. What a sensation!!

It may seem like fun but it is downright dangerous. The faster you travel the more likely

it is that you will be involved in a car crash, and the faster you go, the harder you hit.

The effects of speeding and being involved in a car crash can change your life forever.

Think about this:

Choose your speed and you

choose your consequences.

In a 60 km/h zone, travelling at:

• 65 km/h, you are twice as likely to

have a serious crash

• 70 km/h, you are four times as likely

to have a serious crash

• 75 km/h, you are 10 times as likely

to have a serious crash

• 80 km/h, you are 32 times as likely

to have a serious crash

than if you drive at 60 km/h.

In rural out of town areas, travelling just

10 km/h faster than the average speed

of other traffic, you are twice as likely to

have a serious crash.

Travelling a bit slower than other traffic

on the highway actually reduces the

chances that you will have a serious

crash.

Dry conditions:

The road is dry, you have a modern vehicle with good

brakes and tyres. A child runs onto the road 45 m ahead

of you while you are travelling in a 60 km/h zone.

You brake hard.

Will you stop in time?

• If you were driving just 5 km/h over the speed limit, you won’t
have time to stop and you will hit the child at over 30 km/h.
Wet conditions:

The road is wet, you have a modern vehicle with good

brakes and tyres. A child runs onto the road 45 m ahead

of you while you are travelling in a 60 km/h zone.

You brake hard. Will you stop in time?

• If you were driving just 5 km/h over the speed limit, you won’t

have time to stop and you will hit the child at over 30 km/h.

• In wet conditions, it is much safer to drive below the speed limit. If

a child steps onto the road 45 m ahead, you will have to be

driving under the speed limit to stop in time.
