Speeding Isn’t Nearly the Time Saver it Appears…

Posted on by Defensive Driving Team | in Rules of the Road: Driving Tips

People that have a regular driving routine that they go through on a daily basis, which could be a commute to work, school or other activities, will generally have an idea of how long it takes to get from their starting point to their destination. In fact, many people will know down to the minute. That travel time will vary slightly based on traffic and road conditions but generally speaking, drivers will be able to know just how late they can leave and still be on time.

In an effort to shorten that travel time, many drivers will speed or try and use other techniques to help them get somewhere faster. This sounds great in theory, but it’s not nearly as effective as it seems. If you know exactly how long it takes you to drive from home to work (barring any unforeseen circumstances), then how much time will you really save if you drive 5 or 10 miles per hour over the speed limit?

If you live 55 miles from your job and the average speed limit on your commute is 55 mph, then it takes you one hour to get to work. Going 65 mph during that same commute will get you there 10 minutes sooner, in theory. Is that worth the risk? Most commutes aren’t that long and so the total time saved by speeding is even less. When you consider that you could get a costly speeding ticket or be involved in a dangerous accident, there’s simply no justification for speeding.
