According to the department of transportation publication, speeding is one of the most prevalent factors contributing to traffic crashes. The economic cost to society of speeding-related crashes is estimated by NHTSA to be $40.4 billion per year. In 2009, speeding was a contributing factor in 31 percent of all fatal crashes, and 10,591 lives were lost in speeding-related crashes
Even though the fact that speeding increases the chances of an accident is common sense, people continue to drive at unsafe speeds. When drivers decide to speed, it not only hinders their ability to successfully avoid a crash but it also increases the severity of the accident.
