VIDEO - Rethink Speed

video iconQuoted from the YouTube video page: Our speed is one of the few things we control on the roads. While speed doesn’t always cause crashes, it always determines the severity of a crash. This is because the speed we travel at creates a force and it’s our vehicle and our bodies that absorb this force in a crash. This means the faster we choose to travel, the more severe a crash will be (whether the crash is our fault or not).


As much as we like to think we’re invincible, we’re not. The human body can only withstand certain amounts of force in a car crash. In fact, the impact forces of a car travelling at 30km/hr are enough to be fatal for a pedestrian that is hit, or for a driver in a side-on collision with a tree.

Sorry but "speed" never hurt anybody. It's the sudden stop that hurts.
