What Are the Dangers of Speeding?
Speeding increases the likelihood of a car crash because it significantly reduces reaction time, increases the risk of losing control of the vehicle, and compounds the severity of impact during a collision.
Loss of Vehicle Control
A driver operating a motor vehicle above the recommended speed limit significantly increases the likelihood of losing control of the vehicle after even the slightest error, such as drifting onto the shoulder. A speeding driver may overcorrect, panic, and brake unexpectedly, causing a serious collision.
Decreased Reaction Time
A speeding driver also doesn’t have time to stop or maneuver their vehicle to avoid an accident. Speeding decreases the amount of time that a driver has to react in the event they have to slam on the brakes to avoid hitting other cars, construction barriers, cyclists, or wildlife.
Due to the high rate of speed, the impact during an automobile collision is often more severe and can result in catastrophic injuries.
What Injuries Occur From Speeding Accidents?
An accident involving speeding can result in severe, long-lasting injuries or death. According to the National Safety Council, speeding is involved in nearly 26% of all fatal car accidents. This equals roughly 25 deaths a day caused by speeding drivers.
Those who survive these high-speed accidents are often left with severe and debilitating injuries that may result in short or long-term disability.
Injuries caused by speeding include:
The severity of the resulting injuries depends on several factors in the accident, including vehicle size, speed, and the location of the accident.
