The speed campaign forms a part of the ‘Always on’ Enforcement campaign which talks to the five risky behaviours (Speeding, Drink Driving, Drug Driving, Distracted Driving and non-seatbelt wearing) and will play a vital role in increasing the perceived risk of getting caught and deterring drivers from engaging in unsafe behaviours. The ‘Always on’ Enforcement campaign is an ongoing campaign that runs throughout the year to communicate that any non-compliant driver can be caught anywhere, anytime.
Speeding is an ongoing concern for road trauma and is a key factor in approximately 30% of casualty crashes, with males 26 to 39 years of age more likely than other cohorts to be detected speeding. Over 40% of deaths and 20% of serious injuries occur on high speed rural roads, with run-off road crashes particularly common.
