Speed – #MyDrivingMatters 2.0 Vodcast: Episode 4

This episode of #MyDrivingMatters 2.0 is sponsored by:

The fourth episode in the series is on speed. Speeding and speed limits are a top road safety issue that’s being talked about a lot these days, with several jurisdictions moving to either increase or decrease their speed limits. With the concerning number of cases of extreme speeding we see in the media, it’s a topic that’s on everyone’s mind. In this episode, we discuss setting speed limits and also the effects of speed when it comes to crashes. We also examine ways to positively influence the behaviour of drivers to make safer choices on the road.
