Safety In Numbers

Speed matters in a crash. A crash at higher speed contains more energy that translates directly into more damage to you and your vehicle. Speed matters when you need to brake. Your own reaction time (how quickly you perceive a threat and then decide what action to take) takes place before you put your foot on the brake.
