This might be of interest (published yesterday)...


Purpose of the paper:
- to show the association between speed and crash outcomes;
- to describe the current speed limits in Australia; and
- to outline the safety benefits if future speed limits and road safety strategy were more consistent with the neurological studies on response time.

You might be *very* surprised with their findings.
