Speeding greater than the limits or the prevailing conditions contributes to an average of around 60 people of fatal police-attended crashes on Western Australian roads each year.

Slowing down is the single most effective and immediate way to reduce these statistics. If we all slowed down, our chances of crashing, being killed or seriously injured on the road, would dramatically decrease. Therefore, Western Australia has speed enforcement and penalties for those that go over the speed limit.
