Speeding

Speeding Logo

We get it. We’re in a rush to get where we need to go, but it doesn’t excuse putting the pedal to the metal and speeding. The reality is speeding puts you and others on the road at risk. It’s harder to control the vehicle and make adjustments to any changing traffic or road conditions. There’s a reason we have speed limits. It is the maximum allowable speed for that particular roadway, not a suggestion.

So what’s the hurry? Hitting the gas so we can just take it slow? Not so fast. Follow the posted speed limit and go safely. You’ll get there eventually so you might as well drive safely!
