Speeding Has Increased
Lately more and more states have begun to lift their stay-at-home orders. With this comes certain things like the reopening of gyms, restaurants, etc. Traffic seems to be slowly returning to normal.
During the quarantine period it was a different story. With businesses closed there should have been less traffic, which for the most part that was true, but there were still accidents and serious ones at that. The culprit was speeding. Less cars on the road means less traffic which then means you could get places faster. Drivers definitely took advantage of this and the result, paired with recklessness, was several more deadly car accidents than usual. This type of car accident could be easily avoided.
What’s Fueling The Need for Speed? Or No Places to Go and Nobody to See
The quarantine has taken a toll on all of us. Whether it has been the economic effect (loss of job, closure of businesses), social effect (virtual everything, close quarters with relatives for extensive periods of time), or arguably the most important effect, the health effect they have all collectively changed our lives and forced us to become more isolated than ever.
This isolation has created a situation where something as simple as driving a car has become the outlet for release of bottled up emotions and feelings. It has manifested as speeding.
