Speeding is one of the contributing factors in a large percentage of crashes. Not only does speeding above the posted speed limit increase your risk of being involved in a crash, it also increases the severity of the crash. High speed crashes are more likely to result in a fatality or injury compared to lower speed crashes. This course will identify why it is important to manage your speed and space around your vehicle and describe strategies for effective space management.

Learning Objectives

  • Define speed and space management
  • Identify why it is important to manage your speed and space around your vehicle
  • Describe strategies for effective space management

Key Questions

The following key questions are answered in this module:

When driving in inclement weather, how should you reduce your speed?
Depending on the size of your vehicle, you should reduce your speed by 1/3 on wet roads and by 1/2 on snow-covered roads.

What is space management?
Knowing how fast you are traveling, being aware of the space around your vehicle, anticipating other road users' actions, and adjusting your lane position and speed accordingly is called space management.

How much space should you have between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you?
Always leave at least 3 seconds between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you. If you are driving a larger vehicle, such as a truck, you will need extra space. You should have at least 1 second for every 10 feet of your vehicle, plus another second if traveling over 40 miles per hour.

Speeding is one of the contributing factors in a large percentage of crashes. Not only does speeding above the posted speed limit increase your risk of being involved in a crash, it also increases the severity of the crash. High speed crashes are more likely to result in a fatality or injury compared to lower speed crashes. This means that you should always be aware of how fast you are traveling and how much space you have around your vehicle. This space could be the difference between avoiding another vehicle or being involved in a crash. Knowing how fast you are traveling, being aware of the space around your vehicle, anticipating other road users' actions, and adjusting your lane position and speed accordingly is called space management. Not effectively managing your speed and space can cost you time and money by being involved in a crash.
