In support of Project EDWARD and the FIA’s “Slowing down saves lives” campaign, IAM RoadSmart, the UK’s largest independent road safety charity, has put together a set of tips to help you manage your speed.
Take a look at the following tips produced by the charity’s head of driving and riding standards, Richard Gladman.
Richard says: “Lack of concentration can allow your speed to creep up, discipline yourself to stay within the limit. Be confident enough to adhere to the limit even when everyone else seems to be ignoring them. By good observation and planning, you can shorten journey times without driving in excess of the limit. A useful bonus will be the extra fuel economy you notice when you are not constantly accelerating to then have to stop.”
