The Speed Factor

Speed is a primary factor in aggressive driving behavior – and also a factor in nearly one-third of all fatal crashes. The probability of death and debilitating injury grows with impacts at higher speeds – doubling for every 10 mph over 50 mph that a vehicle travels.

The Federal Highway Administration found that, on average, 70 percent of motorists exceed the posted speed limits.

In 2012, more than 10,000 people were killed in crashes involving speed, according to NHTSA.
