After the light of the new TAC ad i've recently had a few interesting conversations with family members and friends regarding speed limits. I was concerned that the consensuses was that you are completely safe IF you are traveling at or below the posted speed limit. Few people agreed with me that at any speed you are potentially traveling at a dangerous velocity. Have the majority created a false sense of security for current and future drivers or riders by reinforcing speed kills. Now this thread isn't about speed limits or the political side of the law, I'm just interested that if this generalization is correct. Even better if this topic does arise please ask WHY they feel safer at or below the speed limit . I couldn't find and studies or surveys that focus on this issue specifically so thought i'd see what i could collect here. It could be a useful direction to take against current and future motorcycling propaganda. EDIT: Some people seem to be going the wrong way with this topic so maybe i wasn't very clear originally. I'm not asking weather speeding is safer, or weather going slower is safer. I'm just asking whether you believe, by observing those around you if speed limits have created a false sense that "no harm can come of me" and therefore neglect the other factors that contribute to their safety.
