Insane Car Accidents At 125 MPH Caught On Film Show Why You Should Never Speed

A must-see for anyone with a license.

The next time a police officer tickets you for speeding, consider thanking him instead of letting it ruin your day. 

In the year 2012, speeding was a contributing factor in 30 percent of all fatal car accidents in the United States. 10,219 people died in car accidents related to speeding, a number that has (thankfully) been trending downwards since 2002. And yet, people still speed.

Consider for a moment that the only two things that cause more accidents than speeding are impaired driving and distracted driving, and you should have all the reason you need not to put the pedal through the floor. But there's more, too.

Speeding makes driving more expensive. Every five miles per hour you go over 60 mph, you burn approximately $.24 in gas. With tickets ranging from $150 to $1,500, speeding has costed Americans more than $6 billion in tickets. On top of that, crashes where speeding was a factor cost society more than $40 billion annually

In an effort to help combat the way cars speed, the Dynamic Test Center experimented by simulating car accidents in Switzerland where the vehicles were going 200 kilometers per hour, or about 125 miles per hour. They filmed the entire thing, which was then posted by Rumble Viral

The frightening results are enough to make you second-guess your driving.
