Slow down or live with the shame

DOE_MESS_06

Excessive speed is the biggest single killer on the roads of Northern Ireland. What’s more, speed doesn’t need to be excessive to do real damage. Just a 5% increase in average speed increases the risk of serious injuries by over 15% and road deaths by over 20%.

In all road deaths caused by excessive speed, the driver is responsible. So, if you kill someone by driving too fast, you only have yourself to blame. Could you live with the shame?

The penalties for speeding are equally as hard hitting so SLOW DOWN before you cause a lifetime of pain.
