Speeding was a contributing factor in 9.42 percent of all auto accidents. Speeding accidents were the fourth most common type of accident after accidents resulting from a driver following too closely (29,542 or 28.35 percent), failure to grant right of way (18,825 or 18.07 percent) and a driver’s loss of control (12,701 or 12.19 percent).

The speed at which a car is going at the point of collision can have a grave impact on the severity of injuries suffered by the victims of the accident. According to the Institute for Road Safety Research, higher driving speeds lead to higher collision speeds, which result in more severe injuries. Higher driving speeds also result in a greater risk of a collision taking place.
Speeding on the road is illegal and dangerous, and accidents in which speeding are a contributing factor can leave victims with severe injuries. In addition to the pain and trauma of injuries suffered, there are also the stresses of medical bills and the need to take time off from work, which can have serious financial repercussions.
