Speed Limit

Tips To Stay Within Speed Limit

  1. Check your speedometer regularly, especially when leaving high speed roads
  2. Know the limits – look for signs, especially at junctions
  3. Assume lamp posts mean 30 mph, until signs say otherwise, but remember it could be 20 mph
  4. Remember, speed limits are a maximum, not a target
  5. 20’s plenty when kids are about – and may even be too fast
  6. Try no higher than 3rd gear in a 30 mph limit
  7. Recognise what makes you speed - keeping up with traffic, overtaking or being tailgated
  8. Concentrate – distracted drivers speed
  9. Slow down when entering villages
  10. Give yourself time – there’s no need to speed and you won’t get there quicker
