19 August 2010

 Among those recently added include a 2007 report –A Question of Speed is well worth looking at again. This report discusses the influences that have created a ‘culture of speeding’ in the UK and examines the attitudes of drivers to speed cameras and the law, their levels of knowledge about speed limits, and how this affects their behaviour on the road every day. The report also considers whether there are age and gender gaps.
