Exceeding the Speed Limit Can Cause Missouri Car Accidents
By spending even a few minutes on my site, and looking through my accident blogs, you will see speeding mentioned much of the time. As a Missouri car accident lawyer, I can tell you that’s because speeding is the contributing factor to many accidents no matter where you are in the country. In 2009, exceeding the speed limit, contributed to 1,235 of Missouri car accidents. Also, driving too fast for the conditions, for example, bad weather, contributed to 13,846 of Missouri car accidents.
As you can see from those shocking statistics, speeding is a continuing problem that causes Missouri car accidents that could have been prevented. The problem is that these Missouri car accidents haven’t necessarily all been caused by exceeding the speed limit by 20-30 mph. By excessive speeding I mean, those who go 100 mph, not that that’s not dangerous and some accidents are caused by those foolish drivers. As a Missouri car accident lawyer, I can tell you that the problem is that exceeding the speed limit by only 5 mph in the wrong place can just be dangerous, there’s a reason the posted speed limits are what they are. The Federal, State and local governments determined the maximum speeds that allow for safe travel no matter where you are.
As a Missouri car accident lawyer, I hope you understand how much speeding can cause danger to you, your passengers, and other drivers on the road. I also want you to realize that you are also a role model to your children. Once your kids are teenagers, and old enough to drive, you will be concerned with how they drive on the road. If you are speeding with them in the car, don’t you think that makes your teen drivers more likely to speed? You don’t want this to happen because as a Missouri car accident lawyer, I can tell you that teen drivers already are more prone to getting into accidents, which probably doesn’t surprise you.
If you have been involved in a Missouri car accident caused by exceeding the speed limit, you might not even need a lawyer. What you do need after any accident is helpful and accurate information. Order a FREE copy of my book: “The Missouri Accident Book” to make sure you are armed with the information necessary to make all the right moves after your Missouri car accident.
