Drive to Survive and Arrive Alive.

What is the Issue

Speeding is driving too fast for the conditions without full regard for the vehicle condition and driver ability. It is not simply driving above the signed speed limit. Always drive at a speed that will allow you to stop well within the distance that you can see to be clear. Driving too close to the car in front, even below the speed limit, is dangerous. It is a good idea to reduce your speed when sharing the road with pedestrians and cyclist

Speeding. How sorry will you be?

“How sorry will you be?”

Our Don’t Rush campaign, featuring Dr Brian Owler, president of the Australian Medical Association. The new Don’t Rush message encourages passengers to tell speeding drivers to slow down. You can’t predict what’s ahead and speeding increases the risk of crashing. If you don’t ask the driver to slow down, you could be sorry later. If you’re in a car with a speeding driver, speak up and tell them to slow down – you may never get a second chance to.

Objectives
Reinforce the consequences of speed-related crashes and their impact on the wider community
Reinforce the importance of speed compliance among all drivers, especially males
Encourage community vigilance among peer groups to speak out against others who break the road rules
