Speed is a key factor in crashes and road trauma. The default speed limits in Australia have been set in response to research findings that have revealed direct correlation between travelling at speed and the increased risk of crash and trauma. In acknowledging safer speed limits and travelling at appropriate speeds on South Australian roads, we are all contributing to making our roads safer for all road users.
