These numbers should be thoroughly investigated. One third of all accidents are caused by speed. The true figures appear to be 5 per cent.If the nut behind the wheel is stupid enough to go racing, surely it is stupidity rather than speed? And if statistics are written by a road side traffic policemen who isnt versed in accident investigations, and he mentions speed only without proper investigation, then it may be a statistic which is inaccurate when its entered into the books. It could be the road is only suitable for a certain speed, and its road conditions. Statistics at the moment favor speed cameras, as they have entered the statistics and are loving it.
