Low level speeding - Over is Over
Low-level speeding is the most prevalent type of speeding in Tasmania.
It doesn’t matter if you’re speeding by 15 km/hr or 4 km/hr because speeding by even a few kilometres over the limit is dangerous to you and other motorists. Over is over.
Speeding by just 5 km/h in a 60 km/h zone doubles the risk of being seriously or fatally injured during a crash. With so many drivers on the network low-level speeding, the overall increase in risk is substantial – even greater than the combined risk of high-level speeding.
