SPEED KILLS - BUT NOT VERY OFTEN

By EWAN KENNEDY
25 December 2006


A recent major road-safety report from the United Kingdom shows that approximately one vehicle crash in 20 is caused by inappropriate speed. Which resulted in an interesting email from the local organisation representing motorists, the NMAA (National Motorists’ Association of Australia) on exactly that subject.

The NMAA reports on just-published findings of the South Australian government on road crashes in 2005, these show similar results in this country to those in the UK. The report, ‘SA Road Crash Facts 2005’ says, ‘Police reported that 7 South Australians died due to excessive speed in 2005’. The NMAA says that's seven out of 147, or slightly less than five per cent.

...

The association then asks, "And how many of those involved stolen vehicles, police chases and other illegal activity? Quite likely more than half, so now we are down to less then two per cent of road fatalities primarily caused by an otherwise legal driver/rider exceeding the speed limit; and that's a generous estimate."

...

"Inattention was reported as the cause of 32 per cent of fatal crashes and 44 per cent of serious injury crashes in 2005.

"Putting this together, the answer to improving SA road safety is obvious - we need hundreds of inattention cameras!"

it seems to me that many of the adds target reckless driving, and not actual speeding...
