There are many potential hazards on the roadway, and some of these are beyond the control of an individual motorist. However, when drivers choose to operate their vehicles at speeds in excess of the posted limit, they are introducing a needless additional danger. Speeding is cited as a factor in almost 30% of fatal car crashes, and produces collisions which result in a significant number of injuries each year.

Consequences of Speeding
Speed limits are established based upon an evaluation of the geography of the road, the condition of the road, the surrounding environment, and other factors. These are all assessed to determine an appropriate maximum speed that will not be likely to cause accidents. Driving at excessive speeds can have the following consequences:
- Shortening a driver’s necessary reaction time
- Extending a vehicle’s braking distance
- Increased likelihood of a loss of control, whether on a straightaway or around a corner
You should not be left to pay for medical bills, vehicle repairs, and other damages out of your own pocket if you have been harmed due to another driver’s speeding. Contact the Fort Lauderdale speeding lawyers at Winston Law Firm, P. A. by calling 954-475-6666 today.
