Travelling at speeds of 5km/h over the speed limit…


 
You're correct, the answer is "doubles your risk of a crash".

Travelling at just 5km/h above the speed limit on 60km/h roads in urban areas, and 10km/h above the speed limit on 60km/h roads in rural areas, is sufficient to double the risk of a casualty crash. This is roughly equivalent to the increase in risk associated with a blood alcohol concentration greater than 0.05.

What is the stopping distance of a vehicle at 60km/h on dry roads?
