Know Your Speed Limits

Posted by Andrew Mead

What’s the speed limit if you’re driving a goods vehicle on a dual carriage way? If your answer is 70 mph you’re 10 mph away from the truth, which is 60 mph. Speed limits can vary according to the type of vehicle and road and, if you are a fleet manager, you should ensure that your drivers are fully aware of them. Why? Because speeding it is not only dangerous, it can also cost you a lot of money and is bad for the environment! According to the AA, travelling on a motorway at 80-85mph, rather than 70mph, can increase fuel consumption by 25% or more.
