Hazards of Speeding

SPEEDING CAN BE A CAUSE OF SEVERE CRASH
  1. Drivers get lesser time to avoid mishap and the stopping distance lengthens which increases both the likelihood of crashing and the severity of the crashes.
  2. The vehicle structure is rendered incapable of withstanding the force of the crash which results in serious injury to the occupants.
  3. The protection capability of restraint systems such as airbags and safety belts and roadside hardware and safety features such as barriers and bridge rails become nullified.
  4. Vehicles become prone to increased tire tread wear, rise in tire weakening operation temperature, longer stopping distances and increased brake wear.
  5. At faster speeds the driverís ability to accurately see and judge the distances get compromised.
