Speeding continues to be a serious problem. It is a contributing factor in approximately one third of all fatal collisions. While speeding kills thousands on the highway, side roads have a fatality rate due to speeding almost three times that of interstates.
Each year Driving Dynamics trains thousands of drivers across North America through its one day, behind-the-wheel advanced safety courses. During the group discussions our instructors normally ask trainees to ‘raise their hand if they feel they’re above average drivers. Invariably, the vast majority do raise their hands backed up by comments such as: “You bet I am, I haven’t had an accident or a fender bender in over 20 years.” Hey. I know everything there is about driving correctly. As a matter of fact, I just taught my kid how to drive.”
