Share The Road To Zero ...and enjoy long, healthy active lives

Take Time or Do Time

If you drive too fast and kill someone you could face 14 years in prison for causing death by dangerous driving.

So your choice is simple – either take time or do time!


Remember – you MUST NOT exceed the maximum speed limits for the road and for your vehicle.

The speed limit is the absolute maximum and does not mean that it is safe to drive at that speed irrespective of the conditions. Driving at speeds too fast for the road and driving conditions can be dangerous.

So always take the road and traffic conditions into account and Expect the Unexpected.


Rule 125 of The Highway Code NI says – You should always reduce your speed when:

  • The road layout or condition presents hazards such as bends.
  • Sharing the road with pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders, particularly children and motorcyclists.
  • Weather conditions make it safer to do so.
  • Driving at night, as it is more difficult to see other road users.

Plus always drive at a speed that will allow you to stop well within the distance you can see to be clear.
