When Speeding Kills it is Never an Accident in Connecticut.
Speeding is a conscious choice. We don't have to speed. We all know that speeding is dangerous. But it is very common.
Speeding does two things:
First, it makes it harder to control the car making an crash more likely to occur;
Second, it makes for larger more-serous car crashes. This increases the harms and losses from a car crash.
Speeding is particularly dangerous because many people are just bad drivers to begin with.
Connecticut has received a $1.5 million dollar grant to crack down on speeding recently. It is part of a larger $3.5 million dollar grant to help enforce distracted driving laws.
