Driving at excessive speeds contributes to 33% of all fatal car crashes.

We're all used to multi-tasking, scheduling and racing from place to place to make it all come together everyday, but it's important to slow down when we get into our cars and realize it actually isn't a race.

Driving at excessive speeds is a dangerous practice both for you as the driver and for other drivers around you. It is the third leading cause of car crashes. People speed for a variety of reasons, whether they are in a rush, they're simply not paying attention to their speed or they think they will never get caught.

However, it's not about getting caught or not, it's about slowing down to be a safer driver.
