Speed dictates what happens when the vehicles we drive crash into other cars and into other vulnerable road users. The probability of a person walking, or cycling being seriously injured or killed increases rapidly with relatively small increases in speed. Alternatively, a reduction in vehicle speed from 50km/h to 30km/h can reduce the likelihood of a person walking being killed or seriously injured from 80% down to 10%.
For speed limits to be effective, they need to be underpinned by community support and understanding.
That’s why we want to hear from you.
