Many drivers still think a speed limit is a guideline or a suggestion. It’s not. Speed limits are the law. A wrong understanding can lead to aggressive driving and increase the risk for collisions with serious injuries and fatalities. Many serious and fatal accidents could be avoided if drivers obeyed posted speed limits. Speed, in fact, is almost always the determining factor in how serious an accident is and how severe the injuries are. A Fresno car accident attorney can help.
It’s simple; if vehicles are moving at higher speeds, injuries are going to be more serious. Speeding is negligence, and when you’re injured by a negligent driver in California, you have the right to recover damages for your medical costs, lost wages, and other expenses related to your injury. But first, you’ll need to get legal help immediately from an experienced auto collision attorney.
HOW FAST SHOULD YOU BE GOING?
The top legal speed limit in California is 70 miles per hour: a reasonable speed if caution is maintained. Vehicles moving at higher speeds are more difficult to stop; a driver who is speeding will need additional time for braking. Whether the vehicle is a car, van, bus, or truck, excessive speed can result in a steering failure, a blowout, an engine failure, or a brake failure. Once a driver loses control of a vehicle, no one is safe, and high-speed accidents are always more likely to be fatal.
