A speeding ticket will cost you $150 on average. OK, you’ll pay it. The problem is that speeding is often the cause of accidents, serious injuries, and death. It affects travel time and makes it more difficult to stop the car in emergency situations. The effectiveness of safety belts and air bags decreases with speed, putting passengers and pedestrians at a serious risk.
Many factors are taken into account to determine driving speeds – traffic obstacles, road design, climate, and weather conditions. Posted speed limits are there for your safety. And so are regulations that cover driving under the influence. Drunk driving and speeding are associated with accidents, traffic fatalities, and highway deaths.
If you drank a beer and another beer… you don’t need two more beers. Unless someone is driving you home. The risk of serious accident is 48 times higher than if you didn’t finish the six pack. Especially if you are speeding – binge drinking leads to reduced reaction times.
Need for speed? Be careful.
