The 2009 campaign aimed at making motorists aware that driving faster to save time may seem logical, but the facts say otherwise.
For instance, over a 15 km distance in a 90 km/h zone, driving 20 km/h over the speed limit barely saves you 2 minutes. Furthermore, the risk of having an accident is 6 times greater.
Six times more risk for barely 2 minutes... Do the math. It's not worth it, is it? Now you know.
