About This Item

Essex Speeder PCYEON


Mission to Travel Around reminding drivers to slow down!

Most drivers have either driven at speeds above the legal limit or have seen someone get pulled over by the police for such an activity. But why are these laws in place? What is the big deal about going above a speed limit?

There are many dangers associated with speeding, which is one of the leading causes for vehicular accidents and fatalities year after year. By knowing the potential results you will be better able to resist the urge to speed and can help protect yourself and others on the road.


Why Speeding is a Dangerous Habit

Driving above the posted speed makes you a more dangerous driver and increases your chances of being involved in an accident for many reasons, including:

· The faster your speed, the harder the impact. If you come across an obstacle on the road, the faster you are going when you hit it the more damage that will be done to both what you impact and your vehicle. This applies to objects in road, pedestrians, other vehicles, and roadside structures. This is one reason it is vital that you go slowly in pedestrian areas and school zones.

· The higher the speed, the less the reaction time. Reaction time is the amount of time you have to witness or notice an obstacle or potential accident and make the appropriate measures to avoid it. When you are traveling faster than you should be, your reaction time is limited and you are unable to avoid being involved in a car accident.

· Many of your vehicles safety features, such as air bags and safety belts, have a significantly compromised effectiveness after a certain speed. This means if you are involved in a high-speed accident, you are less protected and more likely to be injured than if you were in the same accident at lower speeds.

· Driving is more difficult at higher speeds. You are less able to control your vehicle or brake in a calm and effective manner and your visual field and peripheral vision is diminished. Furthermore, your tires and brakes are under more strain, making them more likely to be defective if you suddenly have to slam on your brakes to avoid an accident...
