Speed, Crashes and Mental Clarity

Speeding is one of the most prevalent factors contributing to traffic crashes. The economic cost to society of speeding-related crashes is estimated by NHTSA to be $40.4 billion per year. 

So what does speed do.....Over 40% of fatal collisions are caused by excessive or inappropriate speed.

Speeding reduces a driver’s ability to steer safely around curves or objects in the roadway, extends the distance necessary to stop a vehicle, and increases the distance a vehicle travels while the driver reacts to a dangerous situation. 

What is worse than speeding...

Ad alcohol with speeding. A deadly cocktail for sure.

It is always the relationship of mental clarity or focus that is lost. Sure, pot, alcohol, illegal drugs, and prescription medicines can keep one from proper and accurate focus. We live in a time where more and more people are driving on drugs.

According to one study of 65,000 fatal accidents, one in 10 of those was due to driver distraction. A large percentage of that driver distraction was caused by the fact that drivers were lost in thought.

The top 4 reason for lack of mental focus.

Generally distracted or "lost in thought" (daydreaming) 62%
Cell phone use (talking, listening, dialing, texting) 12%
Outside person, object or event, such as rubbernecking 7%
Other (talking with or looking at other people in car) 5%
