Over is Over

The time for excuses is over. Because driving even a few kilometres over the speed limit is over.

‘Over is Over’ is our call for social responsibility. We are challenging motorists to rethink their attitudes to speed and encourage them to adjust their behaviour by not driving over the speed limit, at any level.

Speed continues to be the single biggest cause of serious casualty crashes in Tasmania with one in three crashes being speed related.

It doesn’t matter if you’re speeding by 15 km/h or 4 km/h. As speed increases, so too do serious casualties.

Findings from the Road Safety Advisory Council triennial attitudinal tracking research shows one in five Tasmanians find it acceptable to drive up to 10 km/h over the speed limit. This shows Tasmanians aren’t taking speeding seriously enough.
