Speeding is without a doubt one of the leading causes in motor vehicle accidents, killing 9,478 people in 2018 according to the NHTSA. It was also a contributing factor in 26% of traffic accidents that resulted in death(s). The dangers of speeding include: 

  • Loss of control of vehicle 
  • Increase in crash severity 
  • Increase in fuel consumption and/or cost 
  • Reduces the effectiveness of protection equipment
