Speeding not only increases the likelihood of crashing but also substantially furthers the risk for catastrophic injuries or death among victims.
The psychology behind why people speed has to do with a variety of situational, motivational, personal, and societal factors. Some key similarities among speeding drivers include:
- Road rage
- Impatience or being late to something
- Bad driving environment
- Length of trip
- Pressure to keep up with traffic
- A vehicle with high horsepower
