25 Nov Speeding and Car Accidents: A Look at the Facts (Pt. 1)
Car accidents are – more often than not – caused by the negligent or reckless actions of drivers. From driving when intoxicated to texting while driving or simply failing to obey traffic laws, driver negligence can be deadly.
What may be even more devastating than the impacts of driver negligence is knowing that car accidents could have been prevented if drivers had been more responsible when they got behind the wheels of their vehicles.
In this blog series, we will take a closer look at a specific form of driver negligence that is as deadly as it is preventable – speeding. If you or anyone you love has been hurt by a speeding, aggressive or reckless driver, don’t hesitate to contact the Law Office of Richard Langerman for experienced help with your financial recovery.
Speeding and Car Accidents: Why Speeding is a Problem
Before we delve into the facts and statistics regarding speeding and car accidents, it’s first important to point out specifically why speeding is a problem.
Although there are still a lot of drivers who don’t see speeding as a problem (or who only view it as problematic when other drivers are speeding), driving faster than the posted speed limit is risky and dangerous because it:
- Makes it far more difficult to turn vehicles
- Complicates last-minute maneuvering of vehicles, which can be necessary to avoiding collisions
- Requires that drivers have more room to slow and stop their vehicles
- Can significantly increase the severity of motor vehicle accidents
- Decrease the effectiveness of essential safety devices (like airbags and seatbelts).
We will present some specific statistics regarding speeding and car accidents in the upcoming second part of this blog series – we encourage you to check it out!
