Speeding refers to driving a motorised vehicle (such as a car or motorbike) above the speed limit prescribed by the state. Like other forms of crime, definitions of speeding are dependent upon the historical context, situational factors and societal norms and laws. Joy riding involves the theft of a vehicle, its use in various driving performances (including speeding) and often its subsequent destruction through setting fire to it (or ‘torching’ it).
