Research shows that aggressive drivers tend to be involved in more traffic collisions. And, above a certain minimum level of on-road competence, research shows that it’s a driver’s attitudes that make them much more likely to crash. It’s clear, therefore, that guiding high-risk drivers to safer on-road behavior is crucial to achieve safer roads for all.
This webinar, timed to coincide with the speed-themed UN Global Road Safety Week (May 17-23), and presented in conjunction with the Global Road Safety Partnership, will examine the effects of speeding, one of the most dangerous on-road behaviors. It will look at the relationship between minor increases in speed and collision impact and outcome, and explain why speeding doesn’t always mean breaking the speed limit or driving to the extremes. Additionally, it will consider other high-risk behaviors, in particular, the “Triple Threat” of Speeding, Distraction and Fatigue.
