The World Health Organization (2004) noted that a 1 km/h decrease in the travelling speed of a motor vehicle typically results in a 2 to 3% reduction in collisions. An Australian study found the risk of dying in a collision doubled for each 5 km/h increase in vehicle speed; a consequence of the distance travelled while reacting to a perceived risk, the physics of stopping a moving vehicle, and the vehicle’s residual speed at impact.
