If the speed of traffic increases by 50, the risk of death increases by 6

If the traffic speed so 50 increased risk of death 6 fold increase: General Directorate of Police Traffic Services Department, alerting the driver from the website, has lost hundreds of people every year in traffic accidents in Turkey and billions of pounds reminded that experienced financial losses.
The damages of speed are explained in the warning letter titled 'Speed ​​and Risk of Accident in Traffic' on the website of the General Directorate of Security Traffic Services Presidency. The statement pointed out that the speed rate increased by 5 percent increased the fatal accidents by 20 percent, and the following views were given:
“By using the Force Model (Power model), accidents due to variation in average speed and the severity of the accident can be predicted. An increase of 5 percent in the average speed causes an increase of approximately 10 percent in all injury accidents and 20 percent in fatal accidents. On the basis of activities aimed at preventing violations, the idea is to ensure that everyone can benefit from the traffic environment, which is a common use, in a safe, fair and efficient manner. This basic need requires the reduction of the accident risk. The main purpose of the safe road system is to establish a road transport system that allows human error without causing death or serious injury. Although the idea that a safe road system should have a structure that allows for errors seems contradictory in terms of traffic safety, it may be more clear to consider this as a 'traffic system that can tolerate error'. This can be achieved by reducing the risks, reducing the risks and preventing the rule violations. Avoiding excessive speed prevents most of the risky situations caused by possible mistakes and unexpected road conditions from turning into accidents. Since the tangible benefit of reducing speed has been proven many times, this fundamental effect has manifested itself as a traffic phenomenon that is no longer discussed much. The so-called 'moderate speed violation', which means driving 10-15 km / h above the legal speed limit, plays a larger role in traffic accidents with serious consequences compared to higher speed violations. This is because moderate speed violations are more common than excessive speed violations.
