All road users
All road users can increase the safety of themselves and others by being aware of stopping distances and speed limits. The sections below give stopping distances, speed limit tables and further information, hints and tips for safer driving.
Stopping distance is affected by a number of factors, including weather conditions, load, condition of the road surface, tyres, brakes, driver skill and design and type of vehicle.
Know your limits
Every day, 9 people lose their lives on roads and speed is a contributory factor in a large proportion of these deaths.
We provide a range of promotional material for all road users, providing useful information and key messages for safer driving, pedestrian safety, speed limits, red light running and much more.
