I just read this once, and I initially disagree, because driving faster means you would encounter more automobiles. Right? I cannot understand how it would be the same amount of automobiles, no matter how fast traveling.
I know for automobiles the law enforcement claims the faster someone drives the more dangerous it is to the people in the automobile, because it shrinks the reaction time the driver has. Why would this not also apply to any form of moving on a roadway? Now, I have to say, I only stopped speeding, when I drove, because of the cost of gas, because I strongly disagree, because there is another factor never considered and that is how used to and skilled the driver is at the speed.
Maybe, it has to do with the fact that I ride most in rural area and ride in mix environments.
With all that being said, I could not agree more with you, about driving besides automobiles makes for biggest danger!
