2021 road deaths – speeding still kills
In 2021, 35 people lost their lives, which is only slightly down from the 37 recorded in 2020. There were also 242 serious injuries on our roads, down from 290 in 2020.The impact of these deaths on our roads goes far beyond those killed – it affects families, friends and entire communities.
Speeding was again the major contributing factor to deaths on our roads, with one in three fatalities involving excessive speed or excessive speed for the conditions. We need all drivers and riders to heed to message and start slowing down. We all have a part to play in making zero happen.
