Why Obeying The Speed Limit Can Kill You


Why Obeying The Speed Limit Can Kill You: "
Bayview Boulevard Intersection
And you thought that by riding your motorcycle at the speed limit was safe! Not always. June 2009, a 79 year old driver, Andrew Cavanaugh, was driving his car through an intersection in Pinellas County, Florida. The posted speed limit is 25 mph, but the red lights were timed for passing through the intersection at 30 mph.

In other words, just before the lights turn orange, you can safely cross the four lanes at 30 mph before the opposite lights turns green.
