Increasing speed to 150 km/h dramatically increases the probability of a fatal accident

Olomouc, Prague (6 May 2015) – High speed is a crucial factor for the road accident rate. The increase in the speed limit on motorways and selected Category 1 highways by 20 km/h will increase the probability of a fatal accident by 75%.

A speed increase is of no benefit for society.
