Regularly committing minimal speeding violations also greatly increases the likelihood of an accident. In fact, drivers who are fined five times a year for a minor traffic violation are 10 times more likely to have an accident. With notorious speeding drivers, the risk is even greater.
Notorious “much-too-hard drivers,” who exceed the limit by more than 10 mph, pose the greatest risk on the road. Those who receive 10 fines, one of which is for a major violation, are 100 times more likely to be involved in an accident.
Stipdonk: “This group is small, but proportionally involved in a large number of accidents.”
