Speeding

Speeding is one of the most reported factors associated with crashes. Many people think speeding is driving above the maximum speed limit. However, speeding can also refer to travelling too fast for weather, road or traffic conditions – even if you aren’t exceeding the speed limit.

 

The Facts:

  • Speed killed 13 Manitobans last year.
  • Motorists travelling at higher speeds or driving too fast for conditions have less time to react, take longer to stop in an emergency and don’t always see warning signs.
  • The faster you go, the harder you collide. Travelling even 10 km/h less can be the difference between life and death.

 

Speed reduces control and your ability to steer safely around curves on highways or objects in the roadway.
