Government's own statistics show speeding causes less than 3% of accidents and is a contributory factor in about 5% of accidents.

So why spend 80% of resources combating 5% of  malevolent behaviour?

Answer

Because it is a soft target and revenue stream.

Why not abolish speeding as an offence and punish drivers much more heavily if they actually cause damage or injury?

Why is this idea important?

Let commonsense prevail and encourage people to take responsibility for their own actions.

In this way police resources would be freed up, the police would be seen as helpful rather than as agents of the government hell bent on persecuting the motorist.
