Speeding

Consequences of Speeding

Speeding is more than just breaking the law. It’s endangering other motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists, as well as the speeding driver. The consequences of speeding 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; and
  • Increased fuel consumption/cost.
