You have more chance of avoiding a collision when you SlowDown. The lower your speed, the less distance is covered while you make decisions and take action to avoid a potential collision (reaction distance). Also, the slower you are going, the less time it takes for the vehicle to stop when you hit the brakes (braking distance).


And the impact of the collision towards a vru ( vulnerable road user = pedestrian or cyclist & especially children, elderly and people with reduced mobility) is lower as the kinetic energy is less and so the chance to survive or getting no serious injuries is much bigger.
