Dangers of Speeding
In the last 20 years, high-speed driving has contributed to about one-third of all motor vehicle fatalities. In just 2016 alone, more than 27% of all fatal crashes involved a vehicle that was speeding. It is important to use caution when driving and to adhere to all posted speed limits. Speeding can also increase your chances of being involved in a serious accident during bad weather, or when you are driving in low-lit areas. Remember, speeding endangers the lives of everyone on the road, which is why it is important to drive at a safe speed the next time you get behind the wheel.
