Speeding is one of the leading causes of motor vehicle accident in the nation. While driving under the influence of alcohol, an illegal drug, or a controlled substance and failure to wear a seatbelt incidents have declined, speeding is still prevalent and the main factor for most auto crashes. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), one out of three fatal crashes have been contributed to speeding.
The common cause of speeding include the following:
- Reckless driving
- Being in a hurry to arrive somewhere at a specific time
- Motorists who think they are “alone” on the roads and highways
- Motorists who ignore the rules and believe they will never get caught
