As if it wasn’t obvious already, speeding jeopardizes everyone on the road.
Drivers speed for numerous reasons. Sometimes it’s a pure habit, and other times it is a race against time. Miami residents are well aware of the infamous rush hour. Juggling busy schedules and other frustrations, most try to avoid rush hour by speeding when commuting to and from our daily duties. But did you know that in 2019 there were a total of 64,627 collisions in Miami-Dade County?
Overconfidence is another contributing factor that leads to people speeding. When one is familiar with a route, they tend to be less attentive to the road and more inclined to speed.
Human emotions play a role as to why people speed. Some drivers find it thrilling to speed and the “adrenaline rush” gained from it. Naturally, humans crave excitement and can become addicted to getting this rush.
Drugs and alcohol are also attributed to speeding. The effects of specific drugs also give people an adrenaline rush leading them to speed and drive more recklessly.
