Speeding

Injured in an Accident Caused by Speeding?

In the state of Arizona, as defined by §28-701, it is legally required of all drivers to drive at a speed that is believed to be prudent as the current conditions allow. Beyond this, however, there are statutory speed limits defining the speed at which drivers are allowed to operate depending on the area. For example, if approaching a school crossing, a driver must abide by 15 MPH, however, if they are on an interstate highway, they are allowed to drive 65 MPH.

When drivers fail to abide by safe speed limits, they are not only putting themselves in danger, they are endangering every driver around them. As outlined by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Federal Highway Administration, speeding can be the main contributing factor to almost a third of all fatal crashes, as well as serious injuries sustained in car accidents. According to the NHTSA and the U.S. Department of Transportation, over 1,000 Americans are killed in a speed-related car accident every month.

PROTECTING VICTIMS OF AGGRESSIVE DRIVING

Many people believe that driving their car a few over the speed limit is an acceptable risk and one that is even expected. This level of thinking can likely be traced to the fact that most people will typically set their speedometer several clicks over the legal limit. The problem, however, arises because many cars and roadways are not designed to handle speeding. This can result in horrific car accidents that can put not only the speeding driver in danger, but the rest of drivers around them in danger.

Why speed? The causes of speeding are varied. Some people view it as a part of aggressive driving and believe that speeding stems from emotional distress, a provoked driver, anger or impatience. Others view it as a cultural learning that was simply instilled in drivers from the first time they got behind the wheel. Regardless, if a driver speeds, they become a hazard.
