Police would like to remind road users to check their speed and drive to the conditions of the road.
Speeding, either by itself or in combination with other factors, increases the likelihood of injury or death when a crash occurs.
Faster speed increases the stopping distance when an unforeseen event occurs and increases the chance of a crash. It is not safe to speed in any circumstance.
