Traffic Tip Tuesday

Faster doesn’t mean safer! Speeding endangers everyone on the road. We all know the frustrations of modern life and juggling a busy schedule, but speed limits are put in place to protect all road users.

Speeding is more than just breaking the law. The consequences are far-ranging:

– Greater potential for loss of vehicle control;

– Reduced effectiveness of occupant protection equipment;

– Increased stopping distance after the driver perceives a danger;

– Increased degree of crash severity leading to more severe injuries;

– Economic implications of a speed-related crash; and

– Increased fuel consumption/cost.

Please remember that the speed limit throughout the Borough is 25MPH unless otherwise posted!
