It is important to check your speed at regular intervals, a majority of crashes occur while travelling less than 10 kilometres over the speed limit. It is also important to drive to the traffic or road conditions. You may need to slow down to increase the distance between you and the vehicle in front and travel below the limit to stay safe.

Remember, it is better to arrive at your destination safely than risk being involved in a serious traffic crash which may affect you for the rest of your life.
