Kill your speed
Not your mates

Do you have a friend who drives too fast? Do they love the thrill of speeding, making dangerous moves on the roads, driving too close behind other cars and are generally too cocky behind the wheel?

If you answered yes to any of the above, they are a Deadly Mate.

Deadly Mates may be good drivers, but that's not the point. It's that they forget their head and deliberately drive too fast.

If you're in the car with them, they are putting your life and other lives in danger, as well as their own.

Who are yours?
