The Hazardous Effects of Speeding

Despite the presence of numerous posted speed limit signs along the highway, some motorists still choose to operate their vehicles at excessive speeds in direct violation of the law. Occasionally these reckless drivers are cited for their failure to observe the legal limit, but the fines that they are asked to pay for these citations pales in comparison to the degree of harm that can be done when they eventually cause a collision.

If you have been injured in a car accident caused by another driver’s excessive speed, then you may be entitled to seek financial compensation through a civil claim. A successful legal action can gain you the resources necessary to address your medical expenses, automobile repairs, and other damages.

HOW SPEEDING COMPROMISES DRIVING

Speeding not only makes the effects of a collision worse. It increases the chances of a motor vehicle accident by compromising driving in the following ways:

  • Increases necessary braking distance
  • Limits driver control at turns or bends in the road
  • Reduces reaction time to respond to unexpected roadway phenomena

The impulse to speed is driven by many different concerns. Perhaps the most common is a misguided perception that speeding will get you to your destination much faster.

This actually depends upon the distance to be covered and the length of time that you will be traveling, but for most trips the advantage is a matter measured in seconds rather than minutes. This means that speeding is generally unnecessary as well as highly dangerous.
