Why do so many drivers speed?

Reckless drivers who disregard the safety of others on the road should be held fully responsible for causing a crash, and these accidents happen for many reasons. Speeding is one of the more common causes of preventable auto accidents and it is important to understand some of the different motivating factors behind a driver’s decision to go over the speed limit. Unfortunately, this behavior has claimed many lives over the years and it has left countless victims with injuries that shatter their future.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration covers speeding, along with other risky driving behaviors, on their website. The NHTSA points out that one reason drivers may speed because they are trying to get to work on time or they have some other important responsibility to get to. Moreover, traffic congestion plays a role in many of these incidents and can cause people to drive aggressively in other ways. Some drivers may even speed on accident, whether they are not aware of the speed limit or they become distracted.

In certain instances, drivers may speed because they are participating in an illegal street race or trying to show off to their friends. Sometimes, people simply do not have any respect for the laws or for safe driving in general. Furthermore, some people may behave differently while in their vehicle because they feel more anonymous. Regardless of the reasons behind a driver’s poor decision to speed, they cannot be allowed to get away with their actions if they cause an accident.
