Tip of the week

The time it takes to make a 30-mile trip (at a constant speed, without traffic, signals):

55 miles per hour = 32.7 minutes

65 miles per hour = 27.7 minutes (Five minutes saved)

75 miles per hour = 24 minutes (8.7 minutes saved)

Speeding is involved in 13 percent of all crashes and 33 percent of all fatal crashes.

On a five-mile trip a person will save only about two minutes of travel time if going 65 mph in a 45 mph speed limit. Slow down, it’s not worth the risks associated with speeding.
