Speeding & Aggressive Driving

A truck driving quickly around a bend in the fall.

Speeding is defined as exceeding the posted speed limit, driving too fast for conditions, or racing.

Aggressive driving includes tailgating, failing to yield right of ways, running stop signs or red lights, and making unsafe lane changes. All are traffic violations.

Why It Matters:

Speeding and aggressive driving can put you and others in serious danger. How you feel behind the wheel affects how you drive.
