Don’t risk your health!
According to recent statistics there are over 2.35 million people injured or disabled in auto accidents in the United States annually. According to federal and state studies, it consistently shows that the drivers most likely to get into accidents in traffic are those traveling significantly below the average speed. According to research, those driving 10 mph slower than the prevailing speed are more likely to be involved in an accident. In fact, studies have shown that most injuries from auto accidents occur at speeds below 12 mph.
