Summary Report: Development of a Speeding-Related Crash Typology - FHWA-HRT-10-039Speeding, the driver behavior of exceeding the posted speed limit or driving too fast for conditions, has consistently been shown to be a contributing factor to a significant percentage of fatal and nonfatal crashes. Between 1990 and 2006, the frequency of speeding-related (SR) fatal crashes ranged from 11,000 to 13,000 each year, and the percentage of SR total fatal crashes ranged between 30 and 33 percent according to data observed in the Fatal Analysis Reporting System (FARS)
Drivers.com: Top 3 Causes of Car Accidents in America2. Speeding
Everything around us is centered on the lure of quick convenience. Drive-thrus, ATMs, and corner stores are just some examples of our need for speed. But on the roadway, speed is undoubtedly deadly. Speeding is one of the most prevalent causes of car accident today according to the U.S. Department of Transportation. Speeding contributes to about a third of all car accidents in America. Slow down and give yourself ample time to get where you need to go. It’s not worth saving 10 minutes for the potential of losing your life or putting another person in danger.
What Causes Car Accidents?Speed Kills - The faster the speed of a vehicle, the greater the risk of an accident. The forces experienced by the human body in a collision increase exponentially as the speed increases. Smart Motorist recommends that drivers observe our 3 second rule in everyday traffic, no matter what your speed. Most people agree that going 100 mph is foolhardy and will lead to disaster. The problem is that exceeding the speed limit by only 5 mph in the wrong place can be just as dangerous. Traffic engineers and local governments have determined the maximum speeds allowable for safe travel on the nation's roadways. Speeding is a deliberate and calculated behavior where the driver knows the risk but ignores the danger. Fully 90% of all licensed drivers speed at some point in their driving career; 75% admit to committing this offense regularly.
So speeding is not a victimless crime, it leads to many more victims with more horrific injuries. And the speeding driver does not even have to be the main reason for the accident. If you drive way faster than everyone around you, you will risk causing an accident. Even if it is purely because other people do not expect someone to be a speeding a-hole and overtake someone, which they assume is safe to do because you don't expect someone to be speeding way in excess of the maximum speed limit, only to find yourself being rear ended by someone who thinks he/she is allowed to break the speed limit.
And the level of injury is also much greater at a higher speed. Being hit by a car traveling 35 miles and hour or being rammed with 55 miles an hour makes a huge difference for your chances of survival. The same with pedestrians, if you drive 10 miles too fast, you will miss people trying to pass on a pedestrian crossing. Or if you drive 50mph in a 35mph and you miss the school kid running out behind the school bus when that child is trying to get home. With 35mph you have a chance of stopping your car or slowing down sufficiently to not cause lethal injury to said kid. Drive 50mph and you will not have time to stop and your remaining speed will most likely still be enough to cripple or kill that child.
Accident investigations all over the world find that speed is a contributing factor and often even the main factor in accidents. Saying that it is a victimless crime is just totally untrue.

BLADE BABE STRIKES AGAIN!!!
Where on earth do people get the idea that computers are infallible or even smarter than people ? Anyone running Windows knows exactly what happens when a computer or an application encounters a situation it's not programmed for : it crashes; i.e. it gives up, it doesn't know what to do, it's clueless. That is because contrary to humans it has no intelligence. No software is infallible and it has been mathematically proven that any non-trivial software necessarily has bugs. A road control system would be no exception to this rule. And anyone who's on the road a lot knows that cars can make the most bizarre moves in case of unusual circumstances or accidents. A computer system that controls cars would have to have a rule for each and every one of these possibilities. What would your computer controlled car do when another car comes sliding towards you from an angle of 60° at 60mph ? Most likely nothing at all because it would have no rule covering that occurrence (if only for economical reason because a system that would cover every possibility would be prohibitively expensive). A single accident might thus cascade in a general carnage. Yes, there are a lot of bad drivers out there but computers would be even worse at the job.
Other than that, any system that is network connected is hackable, simple as that. It's just a matter of how much time, effort and resources a would-be hacker is prepared to put into it. I can imagine that in this day and age certain groups, organizations and even countries would be more than motivated to gain access to this system in order to create havoc.
Even apart from the political implications it's just plain stupid to give more and more control of our lives to computers. It's we who are homo sapiens sapiens, computers are no more intelligent than a washing machine. Before anyone accuses me of being a Luddite, I have four computers in front of me with 5 different OS'es in total; two Linux boxes, a Vista and a dual boot Windows 7/8. It's because I know how shabbily software is designed these days that I wouldn't entrust them with anything really important such as driving a car.
anyone that would vote for this enjoys being treated like cattle
