Speed Limiters

Road accidents, injuries, fatalities, all have a very serious impact on any country's economy and sociology. Hospitals are crowded, man hours are wasted, skilled workers are lost. Children are left without parents, mothers without husbands, parents without their children.

The only people who benefit from road accidents, are panel beaters and funeral undertakers!!

Why you need it?

Because if you drive sensibly, any vehicle uses less fuel and will last longer! 
Why should your drivers waste your money and wreck your vehicles?

By controlling the maximum speed and maximum engine revs of your vehicles, YOU WILL SAVE MONEY, because your vehicles will be more economical on fuel and will last longer. Fuel savings of more than 30% are recorded!

 Effects of high speed

  • Increased risk of accidents
  • Higher fuel consumption
  • Increased wear on suspension
  • Increased wear on brakes and tyres
  • Shortened mechanical life

Origin of speed limiters in Great Britain & Europe

  • February 1992, Council Directive 62/6/EEC requiring speed limiters in certain categories vehicles.
  • November 2002, European Parliament and Council Directive 2002/85/EC extending the range of vehicles to be fitted. January 2007, extending to more categories of vehicles.

Other countries which followed:

  • Tanzania 2003
  • Kenya 2003
  • Uganda 2004
  • Zambia 2006
  • Ontario and Québec, January 2009.

Scientific Studies (Canada Dept' of Transport)

  • There are environmental, safety and cost benefits. Lower fuel consumption that helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions and saves money on fuel purchases.
  • Fitting speed limiters to all heavy trucks in Ontario would save about 100 million litres of fuel a year - the equivalent of 280,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions.
  • The risk of collision is reduced when driving at lower speeds.
  • Roads and signage are designed for maximum driver safety if the posted speed limits are observed. (visual perception, reaction time, shock resistance) and vehicle performance (braking, adherence, etc.). The safety of road users is at risk if the speed limit is exceeded.
  • Driving at higher speeds induces major stress that results in driver fatigue and loss of concentration. Speeding makes it more difficult to react to changes, stop suddenly and control the vehicle, and in case of a collision, the higher the speed the more severe the collision.
  • Installing speed limiters will reduce the operating costs of many transportation companies by reducing fuel consumption and increasing vehicle energy efficiency.

Success in Africa

Kenyan Government implemented compulsory speed limiters, on all public service vehicles and heavy goods vehicles.

  • Since November 2003, fatal injuries in public service vehicles reduced by approximately 70 percent.
  • A very positive impact on the country's, national economy, gross domestic product and sociology.
  • Insurance companies subsequently reduced insurance premiums.
  • Commuters enjoy safer traveling conditions.
  • Hospitals are less crowded and can give better attention to other patients.
  • Reduced national health expenditure on road accident injuries.
  • Vehicles last longer and have less breakdowns. nLower fuel consumption due to reduced speed.
  • Reduced emission of harmful gases.
