SPEEDING-What a sensational!!! It may seems like fun but it is downright dangerous.The faster you travel,the more likely it is that you will be involved in a car crash,and the faster you go,the harder you hit.The effects of speeding,over speeding and being involved in a car crash can change one’s life forever.
Over speed is a condition in which an engine is allowed or forced to turn beyond its design limit. The consequences of running an engine too fast vary by engine type and model and depend upon several factors, chief among them the duration of the over speed and by the speed attained. With some engines even a momentary over speed can result in greatly reduced engine life or even catastrophic failure. The speed of an engine is ordinarily measured in revolutions per minute (RPM).
Speeding on the other hand, according to the American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition is the act or an instance of driving especially a motor vehicle faster than is allowed by law. Well, I suppose, that is pretty beautiful as regards the difference. It looks evident that speeding comes before the so called over speeding! Literally meaning, if our programmes technically looked at obeying speed limits, we definitely would be more effective.
Bottom line, road safety messages need to be consistent and send the same message across a region that boasts of diversified culture, beliefs and a number of gods watching over their territories.This could be best achieved through effective pre testing, consistent process and impact evaluation of campaigns and needless to mention, effective behavioral health promotion on road safety that should focus on the language bearing in mind that both the young and the old have a different language already.
Let safety be your No 1 Priority, Speeding and over speeding kills. Life lost in road accident is a lost forever.
