Driving is an inherently dangerous activity even under the best of conditions and it is the responsibility of motorists to exhibit safe driving practices in an effort to keep others safe from danger. People that choose to blatantly disregard safety laws and regulations such as speed limits are not only compromising their own well-being, but also the safety of others that may be traveling at the same time.
Speed limits are set for a reason. The location of the road, the type of motorway, its condition, and its course may affect the maximum speed that is safe for drivers. Disregarding these laws can increase the severity of accidents or collisions that result. Some of the many ways that speeding can increase the likelihood of a dangerous accident include the following:
- Increasing the likelihood that a moment of inattention or error will result in injury
- When unexpected road conditions, weather, or obstacles interrupt driving, a speeding car may be unable to avoid the problem
- The faster a car is traveling, the harder it will collide with another object
- Drivers experience a decreased ability to turn and navigate at higher speeds
- Driving fast decreases the amount of time drivers have to slow down or stop
- Safety devices such as seatbelts and airbags are less likely to work effectively past a certain speed.
