The RAA is urging Riverland and Mallee drivers to slow down these school holidays, following new data revealing the speed drivers are most likely to be booked at.

Police figures show, for each of the past five years, the majority of speeding motorists were travelling between 10km/h and 19km/h above the limit.

RAA Senior Manager Safety and Infrastructure Charles Mountain said “The RAA is urging drivers to stick to the speed limit and arrive safely every time they get behind the wheel".

Mr Mountain also urged motorists to ensure their vehicles were roadworthy, especially before driving holidays, including inspecting tyres, lights, windscreen wipers and spare tyres.
