Speed is the biggest killer. The faster drivers go, the longer it takes to stop and the more likely they are to crash, kill and maim.
In towns and villages, it’s a huge killer of people on foot and bicycles and the victims are often children or the elderly. Many children are no longer allowed to walk or cycle to school because of traffic danger.
On rural roads it’s a huge killer of people in vehicles, often young drivers and their young mates, as well as killing people on foot and bicycles and preventing many people from cycling or walking on these roads due to fear.
When speeding causes a crash on motorways, the pile ups can be horrific.
If we slow down on all roads, we can stop in time and stop the deaths. And people can walk and cycle around their communities again in safety.
Our campaign, Kids Say Slow Down, is led by the people who matter most - children. Children and their families have the power to shame the authorities into taking steps to stop tragic crashes due to speed, often involving the death of a child.
