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 - drivers, passengers, bicyclists and pedestrians.

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
* Increased fuel consumption/cost

Today, SCPD's Traffic Unit is in north Santa Clara after receiving concerns from residents regarding speeding.

If you have a Traffic Issue in your neighborhood, report it to SCPD's Traffic Unit Sergeant at - Report Traffic Issues.
