Dont rush campaign

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.
