How to Avoid the "Need to Speed"

When you speed, you put everyone's safety at risk. Cops are always on the lookout for people who draw attention to themselves. Some of the most popular automobiles on the road today include Ferraris, Lamborghinis,, Mustangs, Camaros, Challengers, Corvettes, Chargers, and RX-8s.

If you drive a red, yellow, or black car, you'll draw even more attention to yourself. Highway Hero Driving Academy suggests these tips so you can avoid speeding:

#1 Drive the Same Speed as Others

Keeping the speed with the traffic around you is an excellent way to be safe. Cops are often on the lookout for automobiles traveling at much higher speeds than the average for that particular section of the road. Going with the traffic flow increases your chances of not speeding.

#2 Keep Your Distance from the Front and Back

Keep your distance from the front and back from other cars. Tailgating can get you hurt or pulled over. "Following too closely" is a ticket that an officer could give you for doing this.

#3 Keep an Eye on Your Speedometer

Some people are so focused on getting to their destination that they ignore how fast they are going. The speedometer displays the speed you are driving. Paying attention to it ensures that you drive the required speed limit.

#4 Drive Smoothly

Highway Hero Driving Academy always reminds its students not to tailgate, change lanes abruptly, or drive aggressively. Use your signals at all times and be considerate of other road users. Doing so makes it easier for you to blend in with the crowd.

#5 Avoid the Fast Lane (Unless You Need to Pass)

If you're driving in Nevada, you may not be able to follow this piece of advice since most people drive in the far-left lane. The far-left lane in Louisiana should only be used when passing.

Highway Hero Driving Academy suggests that you drive in the center lanes for the most part. Why? Speeders in the far-left lane of a divided highway are the most probable targets for an officer's radar if a cop is lurking in the median or approaching from the other direction. People who get speeding fines the most regularly exceed the speed limit by 10 or 15 miles per hour while also driving in the far-left lane the vast majority of the time.
