The phrase 'Better late than never' would be great on anti-speeding signs.

As my dad used to always say, "Don't destroy someone's life in a second just to save a second out of your life"

This is already an ad in Australia, it's right next to the ones that go "drowsy drivers die" and "rest if tired"

Better plan and not be late fool. You're an adult get your shit together

I maintain that it's safer to drive faster than the flow of traffic than slower

Isn’t this already a thing? I’ve seen plenty in the UK

I never ever speed to work, I tell myself I'm not going to kill myself or others just for my job!

I don't know... Sometimes on the way to work I wonder if a semi running a red light and taking me out might not be so bad. I hate the thought of my car getting destroyed though. I wish I lived close enough to bike.

"Better late than dead."

Better just to drive the speed of the traffic. Speed discrepancies are the biggest danger. If the general traffic is speeding it’s safer for you to speed too.

I'm from India and we do have a lot of such signs on highways here. There are other signs too, such as "Go responsibly, your children are waiting for you at home."

Better to be late than the late.

My dad used to always ask “Would you rather be fast or alive?” I never speed now. I leave earlier so I’m not late and go a safe speed.

Better to be late to your date than early to your funeral

In my country the road safety slogan is "Better 5 minutes late than dead on time"

In mass they have anti texting and driving billboards that read "Better left unread than dead"

As my grandfather use to say, rather be 40 minutes late in this life than 40 years too early for the next.

One of my previous employers used to have a tagline pasted around the office of "Better to be 5 minutes late than dead on time" It was pure bullshit of course. You were scalded for being 30 seconds late, let alone 5 minutes.

Better Nate than lever.

I'm 33 and never drove a car. I fight global warming by living near work and walking. I've been religiously walking to work and buying groceries on foot for the last 3.5 years. Even better is that I'm never late, because there is never a rush hour for pedestrians where I live. Your mileage may vary depends on where you live and work, so it's not for everyone.

My dad always used to say the same thing when people would rush past him: “He’s in a rush to get to the red light.” Not every time, bur often, we would catch up with the driver at a red light. Unless during an emergency, speeding to save 3-4 minutes isn’t worth the risk.

I would prefer Germany signs that have parts with no speed limit

“🐝Bee alert arrive unhurt”

I'd have to agree on this one. I saw something similar quite a while ago. Something like "Your loved ones would rather have you come home late instead of never coming home" and I stopped taking risks since then

Had these in NZ for ages

Better never late.

If your late don’t speed,you can only be late once

Don't you mean "better late than early".

In high school I won a contest for the local police department where we created a poster with a slogan and it was put on a trailer that has a car that was wrecked. My slogan was “It’s better be late in this life than early to the next” My high school self got $250 and I was elated!

It is, in my country at least.

I drive a fire truck for a living and when we train young drivers (who often get excited and drive way too fast and aggressively) we hammer the point that we shouldn't kill someone on our way to try to save someone.

Better late than pregnant.

Also for plan B advertisments

Gee, I never thought of it that way before!

Think is a good thought
