Speeding is one of the most common causes of car accidents in the United States. Excessive speeds decrease the driver’s ability to maintain control of his or her vehicle, and accidents may result in serious injury or even death. The probability of an accident is compounded when the driver speeds in foggy, rainy, icy, or other inclement conditions. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that speeding is responsible for nearly 1 in 3 of all automobile accidents.
