What is the braking distance if you are driving at 50 km/h?

If you are driving at 50 km/h the braking distance – in ideal conditions – is 12.5 metres.

#### Braking distances in ideal conditions:

**30 km/h**: 4.5 metres
**50 km/h**: 12.5 metres
**70 km/h**: 24.5 metres
**90 km/h**: 40.5 metres
**110 km/h**: 60.5 metres

If the braking occurs in other than ideal conditions, the braking distance can be many times greater.
