Travelling at safe speeds for the conditions is one of the key elements for road safety.
The AA supports having speed limits that are appropriate for the use and purpose of the road, take account of the road's safety features and give drivers' consistency and clarity about what speed they should be travelling at.
Speed cameras reduce crashes and save lives. They are sited on roads with a history of speed-related crashes or are high risk areas such as outside schools.
The AA's position on setting safe, realistic and clear speed limits as well as AA Member views on speed limit tolerances, maximum speeds and slow drivers.
