Speeding is a Common Cause of Accidents and Traffic Tickets Near Arthurdale
One major danger, especially in the areas surrounding Arthurdale, is speeding. Route 92 has some long straight sections on which people often speed.
This is always dangerous, but it is particularly dangerous in inclement weather.
The Virtual Drive website has some tips to help those who tend to speed to slow down and drive safely.
Notice the speedometer. One of the most common causes of accidental speeding is simply not paying attention to the speedometer. Part of driving safely is driving at a safe speed, so the speedometer should be referenced often by the driver.
Drive slower than the speed limit. It would still be easy for many drivers to forget to watch the speedometer, so another strategy is to make a conscious effort to drive slower than the speed limit. This will ensure a safe speed because even if the driver is going faster than intended, it is still a safe speed.
Use cruise control when possible. This means the driver will not have to pay attention to speed at all and can concentrate on other points of safe driving. This is most useful on interstate highways or other highways without many curves, so in the Arthurdale area, this is usually not an option. However, there are some straight sections of the road where this might be possible and helpful.
Allow plenty of time to reach the destination. So far, these tips have been for people who simply forget to drive under the speed limit, but many people knowingly speed to arrive at their destination on time.
Realizing how dangerous speeding is, however, will remind a driver of how important driving at a safe speed is. Drivers need to allow plenty of time to arrive at their destination. Not doing so is putting the speeding driver and others on the road at risk.
If it is apparent that the driver will not reach the destination on time, the best action is to safely pull over, call, let someone know what is happening, and continue to drive at a safe speed.
Consider the consequences. For those who speed simply because they can, think about the consequences. Getting pulled over will slow a driver down more than any speed limit, and speeding tickets are costly. Make the smart choice and don’t speed.
