48% of Employees Speed Driving for Work

Just under half (48%) of UK respondents admit to speeding whilst at work, with a quarter of those saying they’re more likely to speed in a vehicle provided by their employer than their own.

Over half of those that admitted to speeding said they would be more likely to speed to a work appointment, over a personal appointment.
