AND there is the key words. There are more problems with bad driving habits than speed.

Witnessed a smash in the terrace tunnel last week. Anyone who knows the tunnel, knows it goes from two lanes down to one quite a way back when actually in the tunnel its single lane heading into wellington.
There's often a queue of traffic either stopped waiting for the lights or slow moving. The traffic was very slow and a queue was forming about half way along the tunnel, at a guess they would have been doing 10km/h if that, the traffic building up behind was slowing, maybe 30km/h, some person didn't even slow down in that queue, WHACK straight up the rear of another - speed had nothing to do with it, it was simply not paying attention, could have been on the phone or something else, who knows.
