Never overspeed. That is because, at higher speeds, the risk of crashing your vehicle increases. Research shows that the likelihood of being involved in a car crash increases by 4–5 percent for every mph you travel.
For short trips around town, driving at 10 mph will save you a couple of minutes while increasing the likelihood of crashing by up to 50 percent. The risk of crashing is even higher on long trips. If you leave five to ten minutes earlier, there’ll be no need to over speed.
