In many countries speeding is the main risk factor for road crashes, contributing to as many as a third of all road deaths. Speeding is much more likely to be a factor in a fatal crash when the driver is under 25 years old.

Don’t speed! Please, share.

The proportion of drivers using mobile phones has increased in the past 5-10 years but the extent of the problem remains unknown because data on mobile phone use is not routinely collected after a crash. Only 53 countries in the world collect data on mobile phone use while driving.

Hey everyone , as part of my final year at university I have to complete a dissertation. I would really appreciate it if you could take 10-15 minutes to answer my questionnaire. Thank you ! 🚗 The link is below...
My name is Shannah and Im 21 years old. On July 11th I was hit by a motorcyclist around 6pm. I was making a uturn from a Goodwill near by and the man who seemed to be in his 20's on the motorcycle looked like he was in the right lane (furthest away from the inside) he was a great distance away that he looked like a speck. Being how far away he was I then began to I complete the turn, turning into the left lane closest to the turn lane that I turned from. About 6 seconds later he smashed into my car hitting me on the left rear side by the gas cap and taking off the driver's rear mirror as well. The car wasnt drivable after that and had to be towed away, leaving me with no vehicle to get to and from work. There were several people including the man himself that said he was speeding. At the time being how far away he was when I made the turn I couldn't tell if he was speeding or not. I got a ticket for not yielding to traffick in the right of way, due to how the accident happened. He had a suspended licence, no motorcycle voucher/mark and no insurance. This was my first car accident and it was and when I think about it, is still very scary. I have minor back and neck pain here and there and anxiety and stress related to the accident. There's a lot of cost that is going into getting the car fixed as well as paying off the ticket, and so forth. I would be so greatful for any donations at this point and would use them to pay the cost of fixing the vehicle, ticket, etc.
