Most drivers follow the speed limit on most roads. But on certain highways, the speed limit is regularly, if not always broken by most drivers. If you’ve ever followed the speed limit and driven 55 mph on a highway where everyone is else is going 70+ mph, you’re not alone. Some drivers see this as a reason to speed and keep up with traffic, but speed limits exist for a reason.

“Keeping up with traffic” isn’t a valid excuse if you’re pulled over for speeding by a police officer or state trooper. And it also doesn’t give you any protection from being involved in a crash, even if everyone around you is speeding.

In fact, speeding always makes crashes more severe, and when drivers around you swerve or suddenly slam on their brakes, it makes you more likely to crash into them, as you have less time to react and your vehicle will take more time to slow down.

If you’re on an interstate or highway where everyone is speeding, move to the right-most lane and continue driving at the speed limit. Not only does that eliminate your risk of getting a ticket, but it also reduces your risk of being in a crash. And when you drive in the right-most lane, you don’t impede the flow of traffic as you might in the center or left lane.

At Ponce Law, our Nashville auto accident lawyers are here to help when drivers are injured by negligent motorists, especially when they speed. Contact us today for a free consultation if you or someone you love was injured by a driver who failed to uphold their duty of care.

    My son was on a school bus… The school bus was hit… He was taken by ambulance to Vanderbilt. A friend of mine, here in town, owns a hair salon. And she had recommended him. So I actually sent Mr. Ponce a message on Facebook. He said he would love to help! And you know, asked me for some more details. And I’ll give them to him. Some things were sent electronically. That I could just go online and do. And it would be done with! Even the times that I have come into the office. I’m not stuck sitting out in the waiting room forever. I’m brought straight back. And within a minute or two… We were already started!

    The day of my accident, I was riding my scooter and then all sudden… The car just popped out of that other oncoming traffic. As far as trying to find a lawyer… It seemed like we could do it on our own… But it still seemed so iffy! I asked a friend what he thought, they’d mentioned Michael Ponce. And then when it was mentioned… It wasn’t with like… any hesitation. You should call Ponce Law because they will exceed your expectations.
