Increased Speed Increases Your Risk of a Fatal Accident

Increased speed increases your risk of a fatal accident. Speed is a leading factor in 26% of all fatal accidents. Jacksonville was the scene of a fatal accident this week. Speed was believed to be a factor in that crash. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration collects data on car accidents throughout the nation in an effort to prevent as many accidents as possible. Speed, alcohol and seatbelts are clearly three major factors in fatal auto crashes. All three factors are preventable. Young adults and teens account for a larger percentage of involvement in fatal car crashes. Parents begin early teaching your children about safe driving. First and foremost, set an example by driving safely in front of them. Second use age appropriate examples of the dangers of distracted driving, alcohol impaired driving and speeding. Third teach your child that seatbelts are never optional. A staggering 50% of fatal car crashes with a speeding driver shows seatbelts were not even being used. The number of fatalities among drivers under the age of 25 is substantially higher than among older drivers. Alcohol impaired drivers account for 32% of speeding drivers.
