Last year, 83 people were killed and 408 were seriously injured in speed-related crashes.
Most road users recognise the risks of driving at speed and support police enforcement of the speed limit. But these statistics show that drivers don’t always practice this when driving: speed is still a contributing factor in 20% of all fatal and serious injury crashes on New Zealand roads. (Excellent example of “re-phrasing”.)
