Speeding Endangers Everyone on the Road

Post Date:07/19/2019 12:20 PM

We all know the frustrations of modern life and juggling a busy schedule, but speed limits are put in place to protect all road users - drivers, passengers, bicyclists and pedestrians.

Speeding is more than just breaking the law. The consequences are far-ranging:

  • Greater potential for loss of vehicle control
  • Reduced effectiveness of occupant protection equipment
  • Increased stopping distance after the driver perceives a danger
  • Increased degree of crash severity leading to more severe injuries
  • Economic implications of a speed-related crash
  • Increased fuel consumption/cost
