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 essential 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 essential to drive at a safe speed the next time you get behind the wheel.
