NHTSA Releases Study on Driver Behaviors

The “National Survey of Speeding Attitudes and Behaviors” finds nearly half of all drivers speed, among other conclusions

A recently released study from NHTSA entitled the “National Survey of Speeding Attitudes and Behaviors” found that almost half of all drivers believe speeding is a problem, according to a press release from NHTSA. In addition, the study found that one in five drivers surveyed admitted to going as fast as they can when they are going somewhere.

The survey showed various other driver behaviors as well, and found that most drivers (80 percent) believe that driving at or near the speed limit reduces the chance of a crash occurring. Ninety-one percent of drivers also agreed with the statement “everyone should obey the speed limit because it’s the law.”

Furthermore, 48 percent of drivers found it very important that something is done to reduce speeding on US roads. In spite of that, over 25 percent of those surveyed said they speed without thinking and enjoy moving fast, according to the press release. Of those surveyed, male drivers and those ages 16-20 admitted to speeding the most and over the last five years, 11 percent of drivers in the 16-20 age group had a speeding-related crash.
