Both high and low speed, or velocity, can be dangerous. Of the two, high speed is the far greater threat.


Effects (Arrive Alive):

  • Speed reduces the amount of available time needed to avoid a crash/to stop the vehicle.

  • Speed extends the distance a vehicle travels while the driver reacts to a dangerous situation.

  • Speed reduces the ability of the driver to steer safely around curves or objects on the road.

  • Speed increases the likelihood of crashing.

  • Speed increases the severity of a crash once it occurs.

Defensive Speed Velocity

? What is the difference between speed and velocity?

Speed vs velocity.

Speed is how quickly a body is traveling relative to another object at a particular point in time.

Velocity is a combination of the time a body travels as well as the distance from the starting point to the end point over that time.

In other words, you can travel for an hour and land up at the same point that you started. In that case your velocity is zero as there is no distance between the starting point and the end point.
