Speed (continued) - Control - Comedy Safe Driver Class
Naturally, speed effects your vehicle's ability to stop. Not only that, if you double your speed it takes much more than double the distance to stop. If you are traveling 15 mph, and bake hard, it will take only about 10 ft. to stop. If you double your speed to 30 mph it will take about 38 ft. to stop. That's almost 4 times as long a distance to stop with only a doubling of speed. If you brake from 60 mph it will take 150 ft. to stop. So, if you drive 4 times as fast it will take you 15 times as much distance to stop!
