Vehicle Accidents Caused by Speeding
When a driver speeds, they are allowing their driving to be severely compromised. Roadways are assigned specific speeds for several reasons, one of them being that the assigned speed has been determined as the best speed to be able to get where you’re going as fast as possible while also being able to be as safe as possible. When a driver ignores these speeds, they allow themselves to drive at a speed that is not possible to react to changing conditions on the road which will cause accidents and injuries to occur.
