Speed is factor in some road collisions (25% according to the Road Collision Fact for 2009) recorded in Ireland, where drivers exceeded the safe speed limit. Vehicles that would exceed the safe speed limit would affect the quality of life of residents and pedestrians that would use the public road network.
