Speeding Accidents Cause Serious Injury
Speeding is a form of aggressive driving. When motorists exceed safe limits they endanger themselves and others on the road. It is more difficult to react appropriately when a vehicle is moving too quickly for conditions or when a safety maneuver must be made.
The injuries caused by speeding accidents are typically more severe because of the great amount of force a fast-moving car creates. An impact at 25 mph will generally be less serious than one occurring at 50mph. It is not uncommon for a collision with a speeding driver to end in death.
Why Drivers Speed
There are many reasons motorists speed, but none of these excuses have any merit when an accident takes place. Some of the most common causes include:
- Belief that speeding is not dangerous to others
- Driver inattention
- Expectation that they will not get caught
- Texting while driving
Speeding results in the loss of thousands of lives each year, economic costs, and can happen anywhere at any time. According to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Texas saw 1,247 speeding-related fatalities in 2012 alone1. If you believe your accident was the result of a speeding driver, contact an attorney to discuss your legal rights.
