National Speed Limits
The UK has national speed limits which vary according to road type (e.g. motorways versus country roads) and vehicle type (e.g. cars with or without a trailer). There are penalties if you exceed speed limits.
The Police have a simple summary of speed limits and you can also view the official table of national speed limits.
Drivers and riders who are travelling at inappropriate speeds are more likely to crash and their higher speed means that the crash will cause more severe injuries, to themselves and/or to other road users.
