“Excessive speed is a major contributing factor to motor vehicle collision fatalities. The faster you go, the longer it takes to stop, and the more dangerous a crash can be.” Staff Sergeant Steph Pilon, operations manager Perth County OPP. “Each time you double your speed, your braking distance is multiplied by four. In wet or icy road conditions, it’s even more.”
