Speeding is one of the most common causes of car accidents—as vehicles move faster, drivers have less time to react to avoid crashing. According to statistics from 2014, 28% of all fatal auto accidents involved speeding.

Despite the well-known dangers, so many drivers speed without worrying about the consequences. At the very least, they risk getting caught and paying a ticket. At worst, they risk their lives and the lives of others. Young men are most likely to be involved in fatal speeding accidents, while seniors aged 55 to 64 are least likely. Drivers also tend to speed when they’ve been drinking—in 2011, about 40% of drivers in speeding crashes were above the legal BAC limit.
