The Driving Dynamics Safety Team
Speeding continues to be a serious problem. It is a contributing factor in approximately one third of all fatal collisions.
While speeding kills thousands on the highway, side roads have a fatality rate due to speeding that is almost three times that of interstates.
Why do people speed? It’s most often the result of inadequate time management. Drivers may feel the need to speed to compensate for having insufficient time to reach their destination. Many people assume that driving faster will get them to their destination much sooner. In fact, the time saved is minimal. On a 20-mile trip, driving 15 miles per hour over the speed limit will only save four minutes in travel time. However, speeding by 15 miles per hour introduces significant danger to everyone on the road—for a gain of fewer than five minutes. If those few minutes will make or break a schedule, the problem is likely in the planning process, not driving style.
U.S. car buyers now have access to real-world fuel economy and emissions data on new vehicles, courtesy of a research group that helped reveal that Volkswagen was evading European emissions regulations in addition to cheating on U.S. tests.
Among the results, according to Nick Molden, founder and CEO of Emissions Analytics:
• Some brands — Ford, Fiat, Porsche and Mini — routinely score as much as 10% better in real-world driving than the window-sticker fuel-economy ratings generated in lab tests.
