More than 1000 drivers caught speeding in Bundaberg since July 1

SPEEDING is not just driving faster than the posted speed limit, Bundaberg police have reminded drivers.

It's also driving too fast for the prevailing weather, light, traffic and road conditions without full regard for the vehicle's condition and the driver's skills and experience.

Between July 1 and Sunday, police in Wide Bay and Burnett intercepted more than 2000 drivers for speed-related offences, 1116 of them in Bundaberg.

Eleven drivers exceeded the speed limit by more than 40kmh, five in the Bundaberg region.

Police are urging drivers to regularly check their speed.

Most crashes happen at less than 10kmh over the speed limit.
