Speed does NOT cause accidents

Government statistics on accidents and the cause of accidentss over the last five years have shown that ONLY 3% of accidents are caused by speeding. The primary cause of accidents are drinking, use of illegal drugs, driver carelessnes and driver error.

90 percent of US drivers admit to speeding (five miles or more over the limit) on a regular basis. If speed is the root cause of accidents there should be many more accidents then there are since 90% of drivers are speeding on a regular basis.

Thiese speed statistics shows the fallacy of police speeding programs as a purpose for public safety (since speed causes very few accidents) and proves the intent to earn revenue through fines (since the police know that 90% of drivers routinely speed)
