Low tolerance to speeding

AN increasing number of Victorian drivers believe low-level speeding is acceptable and a third have used their mobile phone while behind the wheel according to the latest Transport Accident Commission survey.

The TAC has released the findings from its 2017 Road Safety Monitor which is a survey of 1742 Victorians and its revealed fewer people than ever support a ‘low tolerance’ approach to speeding.

Thirteen per cent of those surveyed believed driving up to 65km/h in a 60 zone was acceptable compared with eight per cent in 2013 and 35 per cent of respondents believed drivers should be able to drive up to 105km/h in a 100 zone, compared to 24 per cent in 2013.
