Speeding is a leading cause of motor vehicle accidents. Even though it is completely preventable, speeding remains a constant danger to motorists even as other dangerous behaviors like drunk driving and failure to wear a seat belt decline.
Accidents involving high speeds are more likely to cause severe injury, property damage or even wrongful death than lower-speed collisions. This can result in substantial expenses from medical bills, car repairs, lost income or funeral expenses for a lost loved one.
