What Shall We Do About Speeding - Education?

It is very obvious that most drivers do not observe speed limits. This is of particular interest in urban areas because of the potential savings of casualties. The majority of drives break the common 30 mph limit; in one survey it was found that 69%of drivers broke the limit. This study has two aims: to determine if there are psychological differences between the high and low speed groups; and to determine if attending a speed awareness course would produce any changes in the perceived legitimacy of enforcement.
