Speeding is defined as exceeding the posted speed limit, or driving too fast for conditions. This type of dangerous driving behavior is often overlooked. The NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) defines speeding as committing a combination of moving traffic offenses so as to endanger other persons or property. Drivers need to be watching their speed limit out there on the road. Especially when driving into a town when the speed drops. This seems to be the place all our drivers get tickets or DOT Inspections. Please watch your speed. Speeding not only affects a drivers record it also goes against the companies CSA scores.
The term aggressive driving covers a range of unsafe driving behavior. This includes: speeding, tailgating, weaving in and out of traffic, or running red lights. Speed or aggressive driving is a factor in many crashes because of the physical forces at work. It takes longer to stop a speeding vehicle, and speed delays the ability to detect dangerous situations. Passenger restraint systems such as seat belts, air bags and child safety seats can be less effective at high rates of speed.
