Factors Contributing to Speeding Accidents

  • A driver has less time to react to objects in the road than a driver who is driving at the posted speed.
  • The faster a vehicle is moving, the longer it takes for the vehicle to slow down or come to a stop.
  • Steering around curvy roads is more difficult, and the vehicle is more likely to lose control.
  • On hazardous road conditions, driving too fast can lead to loss of vehicle control.

Of course, there are so many different reasons that a driver who is speeding is presenting a higher risk to you and your family, but the most compelling statistic is that over one third of fatalities on Missouri roadways involved an at-fault driver who was speeding. Meaning that this is the most common reason people lost their lives on these state’s roadways.
