Over speeding is one of the leading causes of road traffic crashes in the country. From observation, “the relationship between vehicle speed and crash severity is unequivocal and based on the laws of physics.” There you have it: the faster you go, the more likely it is you’ll be pulverized in a crash.
Disadvantages Of Over-speeding:
• More fuel consumption
• Increased possibility of accident
• Damage of vehicle
• Air pollution
• Bad for your health
• It could actually increase your travel time.
Sure, you can save 12 minutes by going 20 km/h faster on a 1 hour trip. However, this greatly reduces your response time.. and a single miscalculation can cost you the whole day. The great danger is moving way faster than the normal flow of traffic. You may be careful but can you vouch for other road users? I bet you can’t.
