Outside of residential areas, the situation is worse.
Only 52% said they would not exceed the 90 km/h limit, and 30% traveled at 96-100 km/h.
Although traffic was milder in March and April due to the coronavirus epidemic, when most cars return to the roads, speed will continue to be key; most accidents have been caused by speeding in recent years.
According to official figures, this is the cause of 30-40% of personal injury accidents, the website adds.
