It is a well-known fact speed is often a contributing factor in motor vehicle crashes, yet drivers still continue to ignore posted speed limits.
“The cause-and-effect behind this is simple: the faster a car is going, the less time a driver has to react to unexpected circumstances, the more difficult it is to smoothly correct the car’s path, and the greater the impact if and when the car hits something. Further, higher speed can exacerbate other roadway issues such as distracted driving, impaired driving and crashes when unrestrained.”- The National Safety Council
Throughout the United States there is active legislation being proposed which would raise speed limits. What do you think, do you feel as if drivers should be able to legally drive faster?
