Stopping Distance

A key issue in speeding related crashes is the fact that most motorists underestimate the distance needed to stop.

When traveling at 65 mph, your vehicle is moving at 95 feet per second.

With reaction time and stopping distance, it will take your vehicle over 100 yards to come to a complete stop.
