- Watch your speed. One of the easiest ways to avoid speeding is to keep an eye on your speedometer as you are driving. This does not mean that you need to constantly stare at the speedometer, but glance at it from time to time, in the same way that you would your mirrors. This will help you to slow down if you are getting a little fast.
- Know when you are likely to speed. You are much less likely to speed in traffic or city centres, whilst out on the motorway or quiet country roads you may find that you naturally start to speed as the roads are clear. If you know that this is the case for you, be more aware of your speed when you are not in traffic.
- Know your speeding triggers. Many people find that they start to speed if they are listening to certain types of music, or when the sun shines, for example. Know which outside influences affect your speed and be prepared to pay more attention to your speed whilst these are apparent, or avoid them altogether.
- Never drink and drive. This also goes for driving under the influence of drugs. If you are under the influence you will generally find that you feel more reckless and pay less attention to your speed. On top of this driving under the influence is illegal and more likely to cause accidents.
