Fewer motorists caught speeding

7 March 2013

Drivers are heeding the message that speed doesn’t pay with new figures showing a significant decline in the number of motorists caught speeding over the last five financial years.

Road Safety Minister Michael O’Brien said 2011/12 figures show the number of speeding expiations issued by SAPOL dropped by 112,000 - or 40 per cent - compared to 2007/08.

“This is a significant decrease and I applaud those motorists who have changed their driving behaviour,” Mr O’Brien said.

“Speed limits are there to protect motorists and other road users. By sticking to them, we can prevent tragedies on our roads.”

SAPOL data shows:

    282, 928 expiations were issued in 2007/08
    276,695 expiations were issued in 2008/09
    253,743 expiations were issued in 2009/10
    229,129 expiations were issued in 2010/11
    170,868 expiations were issued in 2011/12
