Speeding is unlawful and can result in heavy penalties. According to the Florida DMV, approximately 4 million traffic citations were issued due to common moving violations. One million of the violations listed were for speeding. Speeding is one of the key causes attributed to car accidents, resulting in one-third of all motor vehicles fatalities.
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration considers a crash to be speeding-related if the driver was charged with a speeding-related offense or if an officer indicated that racing, driving too fast for conditions, or exceeding the posted speed limit was a contributing factor in the crash. A majority of drivers are likely to drive over rather than stay within the speed limits. Exceeding the posted speed limit is considered an offense. Consequently, speeding increases the driver’s probability of being involved in a fatal crash.
Most drivers can prevent errors by knowing what types of mistakes they are making. There are ways to reduce the probability of accidents due to speeding. The majority of accidents attributed to speeding are due to over speeding, drunk driving, distracted driving, running stop signs, running red lights, and improper lane change. These distractions can be fatally dangerous to drivers on the roadways.
