Driving too fast is dangerous. A speeding vehicle takes longer to stop, and greatly increases the chances of a crash causing serious injury. Yet speeding is not necessarily defined as failure to follow the speed limit as displayed on the road sign. Canadian drivers must also be prepared for weather conditions causing poor visibility and icy surfaces, heavy holiday traffic, summer construction, poorly maintained roads or loose gravel. Add excessive speed to any of these and the results can be disastrous. The costs suffered by a victim of a serious injury in terms of pain, medical care and financial burden is vast.
If you have been injured in an accident caused by a speeding driver, you are legally entitled to compensation for your losses. The Furlong Ford car accident lawyers can inform you of your rights and guide you though the complicated legal process.
Even within city limits speeding drivers may find themselves without the response time necessary to avoid a dangerous and life threatening crash.
Some examples include:
- Running stop signs
- Hurrying through traffic lights
- Speeding through railway crossings
- Disrupting the flow of traffic
- Drag racing
- Driving too quickly through residential or playground areas
