The Governors Highway Safety Association lists five reasons for not speeding.


Save lives - Slowing down increases your chances for surviving the crash.

Save money - Speeding reduces fuel efficiency.  The Department of Energy estimates that each 5 mph you drive over 60 mph, you most likely pay $0.20 more per gallon.

Save the Earth - More gas consumed translates into more CO2 in the atmosphere. The faster you go the more fuel you consume. 

Save yourself a ticket - Obey the speed limit or you will pay the fine. 

Save your license - Each speeding ticket can increase points on your driving record.  You may lose your license in the process and increase your insurance premiums.

A tour bus owned and operated by Orion Pacific Tour Bus Co. in Orange County, California veered into a guard rail on a U.S. 101 overpass on the Monterey Peninsula and flipped and rolled, ejecting several passengers from the bus along with luggage and clothing onto the highway.

The bus was carrying French and Canadian passengers killing at least four people and injuring everyone else on the bus estimated to be up to 48 people on board.  Because of the accident scene's remoteness, eight helicopters and 14 ambulances were needed to take the injured to hospitals in the region, officials said.  The cause of the bus accident is still under investigation at the time of this writing.

Accident Response Fees?

A woman in Winter Haven, Florida was involved in a car accident in February.  Almost immediately after the crash, local police officers and firefighters showed up at the scene.  The quick response wasn't the surprise to the driver Shirly Kimel.  Instead it was a $315 bill she received from the city for the cost of the police and fire department responding.

Kimel stated “I always thought this sort of thing was covered by my taxes.”  It used to be.  But last July, Winter Haven became one of a few dozen cities in the country to start charging “accident response fees.” The idea is to shift the expense of tending to and cleaning up crashes directly to at-fault drivers.  Either they, or their insurers, are expected to pay.

The problem is that car insurance is not likely to cover this expense which leaves the driver stuck with the bill.  With the downturn in the economy and local governments trying to make up for lost revenues, creative measures such as this accident response fee and other types of fees are popping up around the country.

Let's hope that the State of Washington doesn't get wind of this and start charging us for the privilege of having the police and fire department respond to a car accident.
