Speed

CrestPageHeader

Excessive and inappropriate speed is a major contributory factor in road collisions and casualties. The impact of speed-related collisions and casualties is huge, not only in the amount of emotional and physical pain caused to those involved, but also in a financial sense.

It is estimated that the financial cost of road traffic collisions to the community of Derbyshire is in excess of £270 million each year.
