Awareness Campaigns

2010 Speeding Campaign

“Do you drive over the speed limit to save time?”

Speeding is one of the main causes of accidents on the road.

The 2010 campaign featured two TV commercials and one radio ad to raise public awareness about the dangers of speeding.

The message was this: Many of us drive over the speed limit to save time, but this behaviour, even on occasion, is risky, and gains are often simply… ridiculous.

Useful information

Driving over the speed limit exponentially increases the risk of accidents. In urban areas, the risk of being involved in an accident doubles for every 5 km/h over the speed limit. In rural areas, the risk of being involved in an accident is 2 times greater at 10 km/h over the speed limit, almost 6 times greater at 20 km/h and almost 18 times greater at 30 km/h over the speed limit.
