Kill Your Speed

■One in three road deaths is caused by someone driving too fast
■Over two thirds of all injury accidents in Leeds happen on roads with a 30 mph speed limit.
■Two thirds of drivers break the speed limit.
■If your car hits a pedestrian when you are driving at 40 mph you are four times more likely to kill them than if you were travelling at 30 mph.
■In Leeds during 2008 there were 2334 crashes causing 3220 casualties.
■27 people were killed, 344 had serious injuries and 2849 were slightly injured.
■464 of these casualties were pedestrians.
The faster you drive, the less time you will have to react to and avoid a hazard in the road ahead.

The faster you drive the more likely it is that someone will be killed or injured if your car hits them.
