The farther removed in time that a driver gets from his or her driving education and his or her first days of driving, the fuzzier many of the details pertaining to traffic safety laws are likely to become. For example it is unlikely that 35 year old who has been a licensed driver for nearly 20 years would probably be unable to recount the appropriate distance at which use of a turn signal is considered to be appropriate.
But the posting of speed limit signs serves as an active and ongoing reminder of an important legal restriction on the operation of a motor vehicle. When drivers choose to disregard the speed limit, they become more likely to cause car accidents.
If another motorist’s failure to observe the speed limit has resulted in your injury or in damage to your vehicle, then it might be in your best interest to consider filing a lawsuit in addition to an insurance claim. Hold a reckless driver accountable for his or her negligence. Contact the Racine car accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® today at 800-242-2874.
The Effects of Speeding
Accidents caused by or worsened by speeding have the potential to be more severe than those which occur at lower speeds because the force at the time of impact is much greater. Unfortunately this does not deter a driver who believes that it is more important that he or she reach his or her destination quickly than it is to avoid needlessly endangering the safety of others. The direct effects that speeding can have on driving include:
- Rendering a car less securely controllable
- Making turns unsafe and unstable
- Increased braking distance required
- Limited response time to changing roadway phenomena
