The Dangers of Speeding

The Dangers of Speeding
July 22, 2022
Driving over the speed limit at any rate can be extremely dangerous to the driver, passengers, and others on the road.

Although it may not always be top of mind on a routine outing, it is important to pay attention to your speed on the road. Speeding can not only result in crashes, but the driver or responsible party can also face serious legal consequences. 
  • Increased distance needed to stop a vehicle
  • Reduced reaction time
  • Higher severity of crash if accident does occur
  • Increased occurrence of rollover accidents
  • Higher risk of losing control of vehicle
  • Other drivers may misjudge your speed and turn into your path
  • Pedestrians may misjudge your speed and walk out in front of you
Speeding not only refers to driving over the posted speed limit. Speeding can also include other behavior, such as
  • driving too fast for road conditions like rain or ice
  • driving carelessly through construction zones.
